These are fabulous! They go with anything! As an appetizer, quick snack, with cocktails, and my hubby takes them on his hikes. I've made these for parties; they're great to put in muffin/cupcake papers and put them out around a party area. Note: be very careful when handling cayenne pepper; don't rub it in your eyes. Don't give children access to these, it could be very painful for them.
