A few years ago my friend made these for a party that we had. They were such am awesome appetizer and they were gone in about 5 minutes. I asked her to bring them to every get together that we had, even a party that they had for me before I moved! I have been craving these things ever since. The combinations of flavor is so amazing and the sauce is so savory. I was so glad that she shared the recipe with me! You will love these too and they will be a hit at any get together!

  1. My family can’t stand nuts, so I’ll have to cut this recipe in half for just me and my boyfriend. Can’t wait to try it.
