    Cherry tomato quarters form the wings of these adorable little ladybugs. The delightful creatures are perched on crunchy crackers spread with a seasoned cream cheese mixture.

      I have no idea how these taste because I am lactose intolerant but I am giving them 5 stars for cuteness! I made these for a baby shower where I happened to know the baby's nursery theme was ladybugs and they were a huge hit with the expecting parents!

      I don't like tomatoes, so I made this to bring to a New Year's party. They were a big hit! Thanks for the great recipe. I had a problem finding black food coloring so we made them without the "spots" and they still looked as cute as can be.

      These are AWESOME. Have made many, many times. Always a hit with a crowd and never any left over. Don't assemble too far in advance, the crackers will become soggy.
