Top Review by Charlotte J

Sorry, but I thought we'd like these. They were easy to make but were not firm enough to pick up. And the flavor was way to strong. I can't tell you which it was, to much gingerroot or soy sauce. Any way they did not go well at all. My brother thought of you spread it on a cracker it might help the taste. These were one of the two appetizers for the kids. I made this for my daughter, her date and 5 other of her friends that came over to have their dinner here before Prom this spring. They thought it was pretty cool eating dinner with my fine china and linens. Oh yes, I even had my set of double candlesticks on the table for them.
