Variations

  • If you want to provide a dairy-free option, then you could seek out some dairy-free or vegan cheese and use this instead. It may not give you the same texture as the string cheese, but you can find some great vegan alternatives. You could use a block of cheese and then slice into it differently to create the frayed broom effect.
  • Use food dye to create a different look and color on the cheese.
  • Instead of using cheese, you could use vegetables. A piece of carrot or even a cucumber could work well.
