Crispy Pepperoni Flowers

 Good Day! to you all.  I just wanted to drop in and share a little tidbit of sunshine to brighten a  gloomy day when you need it.  If you are a fan of pepperoni and mozzarella cheese, this ensemble will serve you over and over.  The pepperoni becomes extra crispy when either rendered in a saucepan or a plate in the microwave.  I used a microwave for convenience and speed.
*The pepperoni is simply arranged in an overlapping patter making sure there is contact between each slice, in one form or another. Use 5 slices for this flower design and 1 placed on the centered area of the layers, for a total of 6 slices per Fragaria.  The flower will fuse together as it crisps and can be held as you would a large cracker.  
 *Have fun with the kids by letting them assemble the flowers and creating custom flowers of their own design.
* I used a 1/4 tsp. measuring spoon as a cookie cutout for the cheese, but you may use what you feel is suitable to make your desired pattern for the centerpiece. The pepperoni may be microwaved for about 2 minutes, give or take, until the protein is crisp.  
*After the pepperoni is transferred to a paper towel to drain, promptly add the cheese centerpiece and allow to melt slightly, completing the flower and the snack.  

Make as many as you like, 2 flowers would be considered a serving.
