Mini Shrimp Cocktail Appetizers

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

From Kraftfoods(dot)com website. I made these for a party and I've had so many people request the recipe. Kraft calls for using finely chopped onions but I skipped that just to make it an even faster appetizer to get on the table.

These were a big hit. Certainly will make again. I removed the tails of shrimp to make appetizers much easier to eat..

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 crackers (I have used Ritz & Cobblestone Wheat Crackers)

  • 16 large fresh shrimp, cooked (or pre-cooked frozen shrimp that has been thawed)
  • 13 cup finely chopped green onion (optional)


  1. Spread each cracker with 1 tsp of the cream cheese spread.
  2. Top evenly with the cocktail sauce and one shrimp.
  3. Sprinkle some of the finely chopped onions on top (if you desire).
