The blend of cheese was wonderful. I preferred mine on a wheat cracker as these bites are very rich! Thanks for sharing. Made for Photo Tag.

I LOVE bleu cheese, and these did not disappoint. I prepared these for an appetizer / finger food party where the bite-size was perfect. On a platter with Recipe #177015, these were great with crackers and the recommended pretzels. I will be making these again.

Made these up as is for a neighborhood get-together & the approval rating went sky-high! A little time consuming to make, but the praise while devouring was appreciated! Thanks for an absolutely great-tasting, uniquely-presented KEEPER! [Made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe tag in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #20]
