Salted hearts and I love you


I really like to receive friends for a drink.
Salted hearts is ideal to be served as an amuse bouche but also as a dinner entrée during the summer.

Thinking about the heart, I created the napkin ring I LOVE YOU. It's handmade with copper thread and it will be a perfect match for lots of occasion.

You can use them as napkin rings and as placeholder too: you can slide in the small spiral a note with the name of your guest, or a special sentence for your beloved during a tête-a-tête. If you like click here to shop for them.

The presentation of the dish requires calm, attention and manual ability, but in the end, the satisfaction and taste is guaranteed!
If you do not want to be nervous, help yourself using a heart-shaped cutter for biscuits.
A white or light colored plate will add value to the colors and form of the food.

preparation: 40 minutes
kcal 80 per person

For 8 persons you need:

-3 Medium carrots peeled and grated
-3 Eggs
