These super easy puff pastry cheese twists make for the perfect snack or treat. They are also fantastic for lunch boxes as most kids will love them. These aren’t just great as lunch, but they’re even great as platter food or as a side dish to another meal.
These twists come out to be jam-packed full of flavor and have a very satisfying crunch. They’re a super easy dish and should only take you a maximum of 10 minutes to throw them together and get them in the oven. This will, of course, vary depending on how many you’re making.
I love having these with some nice dips. My personal favorites would be to have this with some spring onion or French onion dip. If you’re really feeling a bit experimental, you can even, try it with a corn relish dip but for me, it didn’t work as well.
Once cooked these will refrigerate nicely and should keep for up to about a week before you should look at discarding them.
