Ingredients
  • 200g light soft cheese
  • ½tsp mild curry powder
  • 30g fresh breadcrumbs
  • 3 carrots, finely grated
  • 5 pretzel sticks, broken into thirds
  • 8 pearl mozzarella balls, halved
  • Black food colouring gel
Method
  • Mix together the soft cheese, curry powder and breadcrumbs.

  • Dry the grated carrots by pressing between layers of kitchen roll, then tip into a large bowl.

  • Scoop up walnut-sized spoonfuls of the soft cheese and drop into the grated carrots. Shake the bowl to coat the cheese in the carrots before using your hands to roll them into balls. Put on a baking tray lined with baking paper and repeat until you’ve used all of the cheese mixture. Chill for 30 mins, or until required.

  • Before serving, make the eyeballs by sticking pretzel pieces into the mozzarella halves. Use a cocktail stick to dot with food colouring for pupils. Poke 2 pretzel sticks into each carrot ball and serve.
