This Food Doesn't Look Like Food. But It Is...

Who wants to have a Ladybug tea party? If you really want to get creative with your food, and use your cherry tomatoes often you should do this! My daughter was at a birthday party where these were served as a treat and talked about them so much I had to call for the recipe. Any time a healthy snack is a big hit I need to add it to my recipe box. So far I have not been successful in tracking down the person who actually invented these. But thank you, whoever you are - I really enjoy making these and cherry tomatoes are so good for us!

Now let's get to how I did it.
