  1. Cut 2 x 2cm rounds from one end of each cheese slice and reserve for the eyes. Cut one side of each slice into ridges to make teeth; place in the roll and top with the ham.

  2. Cut 4 thin rounds from the carrot, then cut a 5cm long piece from the remaining carrot. Slice into thin sections and cut into triangles for the fangs and horns.

  3. Cut 2 batons from the cucumber and slice the rest. Set aside 4 slices and put the rest inside the rolls.

  4. For the eyes, top a reserved cucumber round with a carrot slice, a cheese round, then an olive slice. Secure onto the roll with half a cocktail stick and secure the cucumber eyebrows with another cocktail stick. The horns will stay in place when pierced into the roll*.

Cook's tip: Cut a point at the end of each horn to make it easier to pierce the roll and stay in place.

*Remove cocktail sticks before eating
