Tina's Best of Show Faux Escargot

Since my daughter developed an allergy to certain seafoods, I wanted to keep the flavor and drop the danger. Made this for Thanksgiving now I am requested by everyone to make it again for Christmas Eve. No prob here, I love this stuff!! Please excuse the date error on the picture, my error.
