This is the perfect simple party recipe; you can make cheese spread ahead of time, and simply make up your canapes when you are ready to serve. My sister in-law Natasha shared this delicious recipe with me. Whenever we have parties at our mother in-laws house, she makes them, and they are the HIT!!! Kids love them, well……, adults also…..
These can be topped with chicken instead of shrimp, choose your favorite cheese… You have lots of options here.
