Made these for an Asian appetizer party I hosted and they were a huge hit. Guests called them addictive. Simple to make ahead of time and a great flavor blend. The only thing I changed is that the recipe calls for "2 cloves of ginger, minced". Since there is already fresh grated ginger in the recipe, I thought that the cloves must be garlic, so that's what I used. Will definitely be making these again!
