I made this as an appetizer for my son's first birthday luau. Incredibly easy and yummy, and they looked really pretty on a serving platter. I used real crab meat.

I made this with the imitation crab meat. I didn't have any wonton wrappers, so I used fillo sheets cut to size. This was delicious! This would be wonderful to serve at a get-together for little snacks! Wonderful recipe!
