Fill the three bread bowls with the mayonnaise mixture, and arrange the bowls on top of one another in a casserole dish, to make a snowman. Tear off small pieces of rye bread to make the snowman’s eyes and buttons. Use full slices to make his hat. Stick the baby carrot in the top bread bowl as the snowman’s nose.

5-minute Hummus and Rolls Snowman
- Dinners rolls, 8-10

In a bowl, place dinner rolls around the edge, making circular space in between. In this space, scoop in the hummus sauce evenly so that it covers the whole empty space.

- 4 large hard-boiled eggs
- 4 small hard-boiled eggs
- 24 -28 Peppercorns
- 1 carrot
- 4 skewer/stick for BBQ or uncooked spaghetti
- Parsley leaves (optional)
Peels the eggs and carrot. Cut the top end of both the carrot and eggs. Now slice the carrots in a way that you have 4 large thick discs and 4 smaller yet thicker discs for the snowman hat. Now gently sew each skewer with the larger carrot disc first, then the smaller disc and two eggs. Repeat the same process with all 4 skewers. Turn the skewer upside down so that you have the carrot side on top as the hat and eggs as the body of the snowman. Make sure the large boiled eggs are on the bottom of the skewer and the smaller eggs are on top so that it makes the face and body. Now take peppercorns and press them gently on the centre of the top egg as the eyes. Use a few more peppercorns to make the buttons of the snowman. If you are using parsley leaves, insert them on the side for decoration. If the skewer is extended from the top, cut off to the level of the hat. Place these little snowmen on a platter and serve.
Assembling the snowman
1. Hollow out the bread bowl – Slice off the top of the loaf of bread using a bread knife, then hollow out the interior to make a bowl. Save the bread pieces you removed so you can use them as spinach dippers.
2. Prepare the spinach dip – The frozen and drained spinach, and other ingredients should all be thoroughly combined in a large mixing dish.
3. Fill the bread bowl with spinach dip – Put the spinach dip in the bread dish that has been hollowed out.
4. Create the snowman shape – To make the snowman’s head, place the extra bread on top of the spinach dip. To make room for the carrot nose, cut a small portion of the top slice of bread with a knife. Add the black olive slices for the eyes.
5. Add the arms and hat – To make the snowman’s arms, use a few fresh rosemary sprigs. Other herbs or vegetables, such as celery or carrot sticks, are also acceptable. Use a basic cone-shaped piece of parchment paper to make the hat, or pipe the spinach dip onto the snowman’s head using a piping bag and star tip.
