Here comes a sweet potato treat perfect for your new year’s get together! Or for any other get together for that matter. These canapés bring the roasted sweet jammyness of the sweet potatoes, the luscious creaminess of whipped cream cheese and the spicy, nutty, maple syrup-y goodness in the seed crisp together to delight your guests.

They look pretty dramatic too I think with the orange against the white cream cheese and marbled but predominantly black seed crisp. Can’t go wrong with good looking food, we do eat with our eyes after all! If you can’t find black sesame seeds though they will look equally lovely using white and you could use only pumpkin or sunflower seeds if you don’t have all three seeds on hand.

These canapés take very little work for maximum effect so if you haven’t yet got your new year’s menu down I can wholeheartedly recommend this one!
