Top Review by Recipe Maven

These tiny appetizers are packed with flavor and they looked so pretty on the table too! They were fully enjoyed at my daughter's college graduation and I got asked about 10 times for the recipe. (Just so happened I made copies, because I knew how good they were. :) You don't have to wait for a party to have these though. They are great for a snack while playing cards or watching the game, or any old time for that matter. We loved them. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us!
