Each year my husband and I host a Christmas Eve Party for Friends and Family and I am always trying to come up with easy appetizers to prepare! This year I decided to try this recipe which I have created 2 different types. It is so easy but tastes like you slaved all day in the kitchen! A very nice finger food for any party.
