Top Review by cooptender

I made these for a pairing at a beer, wine, and bourbon tasting for a formal event. They got rave reviews. People were a little intimidated when I told them the ingredients, but once they tried them they came back for more. I was a worried they were going to be too spicy, as in hot, because I used a habanero hot sauce, but they were flavorful, not spicy hot. I'll be making more of these to give as gifts for the holidays.
