To Die for Marinated Cheese Appetizer

READY IN: 8hrs 20mins
Recipe by Autism Mommy

When I use to cater this was one of the most requested dishes from my clients. I can't believe I am finally posting the recipe but I recently misplaced it and figure if I put it on here it will never be lost. I serve this with Wheat Thins. Enjoy!

I believe this is the same recipe I found in Southern Living Magazine a few years ago and it is always a big hit when I make it. Thanks for sharing it with the other readers.
