  1. Pulse walnuts in a food processor until it resembles the size of cooked ground beef. Melt chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl. Stir in walnuts and sugar to coat; microwave to melt and stir if needed.
  2. Place coconut in a resealable plastic bag. Dip a toothpick in the food colouring and stir into the coconut; seal the bag and massage the coconut, adding more colouring until it resembles shredded cheddar cheese.

  4. Slice blueberries into rounds then use the tip of a round piping tip to cut out holes to mimic olives.
