It's the time of year where it's nice to bring out a few extra snack ideas. I received this recipe years ago from a friend and always loved it, but you know how it is, things get shuffled around and l lost it. Thanks, Hilda for sharing this recipe with me again. It's tasty, simple and easy to make and I don't think you will have any leftovers.
