Your kids are going to just love these Snail Pesto Pinwheels for a fun appetizer and this 4 ingredient recipe is SO easy to make!  My boys had fun creating these little guys and said they tasted amazing! We adapted a Red Gold Tomatoes recipe that you can find here and put our fun twist on it.  We have really enjoyed being Red Gold blog ambassadors and my family loves their products for so many reasons!

You can check out our previous Red Gold challenge that my boys took and see the results HERE.  They were so surprised with the difference between brands of tomatoes…it’s a BIG difference! My boys were never fans of tomatoes until they tried Red Gold & now they love tomatoes and these cute little snails just make eating tomatoes extra fun!

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Stand them up while they are still a bit warm so the bottoms will have a flat surface before they cool…
