I made this appetizer for my first Pampered Chef party. Actually, I made Mr. make the recipe because I was too busy preparing for the party! Anyhow, they were so easy and my guests loved them. One of my favorite Pampered Chef products is the Mini Muffin Pan. I use mine all the time and always make one recipe at each party using it. It's a top 5 in my kitchen. From bite sized appetizers to desserts, you can't go wrong. To order one, visit my site. Make sure to add this recipe to your fall football party list!
