For the Red Rose Dip:

50 g drained sunblush tomatoes
1 tbsp tomato ketchup
4 basil leaves
110 g cream cheese (reduced fat is fine)
6 tbsp Greek yoghurt
1/2 tsp lemon juice
1-2 tsp milk

For the Snow White Dip:

1 x 400 g tin canellini beans, drained & rinsed

2 tbsp olive oil
white pepper, to season
Method
  1. To make the broomsticks – Attach the mini Twiglets to the Grissini sticks with some string and then tie chives around them.  The chives will be easier to tie if you put them in the microwave for a few seconds first.
  2. To make the red rose dip – Put all of the ingredients except the milk into a food processor and season with salt and pepper. Whiz until smooth. Add 1/2 tbsp of the oil from the tomatoes and 1 tsp milk and whiz again, adding the extra teaspoon of milk if the dip is too thick. Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate until needed. Serve with crudités and breadsticks for dipping.
  3. To make the snow white dip – Put all of the ingredients in a food processor and season to taste with salt and white pepper. Whiz until smooth. Transfer to a bowl, cover and refrigerate until needed. Serve with crudités and breadsticks for dipping.
