The holidays are here!

If you are having a party chances are you wont’ have time to fuss over fancy, festive appetizers but, this recipe can solve that problem.

These little avocado appetizers are festive and fancy but are super quick and easy to make! From start to finish this recipe will only take 20-30 minutes tops.

Here is what you will need to make 12:

12 Melba toast rounds (or your favorite crackers )
1 large avocado
3 ounces of cream cheese
12 mint leaves (the baby ones)
12 dried cranberry halves
salt and pepper
chilli powder or paprika

1.) Whip together the avocado and cream cheese. Season with salt and pepper. If you are going to make this ahead of time, keep the avocado seed in the bowl (it will help stop the avocado from browning.) You can also place a piece of cling film on top of the avocado (so it touches), this will also stop it from going brown.

3.) Voila! There you have it. Serve it up.
