Method

  • Cut out a triangle at one end of the cucumber to make the crocodile’s mouth.
  • Cut a long strip from a carrot using a vegetable peeler. Cut this into a strip about 1cm wide and cut along one side to form a serrated edge for the crocodile’s teeth.
  • Cut a groove in the mouth of the crocodile to hold the carrot strip and keep the ‘teeth’ in place.
  • Use a quarter of another cucumber to cut out feet for the crocodile and attach these with toothpicks.
  • Chop the cheese and pineapple into cubes. Thread cheese and pineapple cubes onto each cocktail stick and spear the sticks into the cucumber.
  • Cut a cocktail stick in half and use the two halves to attach the cherry tomatoes to form the crocodile’s eyes.
