Reviews for Apricot-Ricotta Stuffed Celery
"This is a fairly healthy recipe that gives you something sweet. I left the filling on the side as well and have used a variety of different things to try with it. Great for an afternoon snack!"
"Didn't really like this. Made it for Fourth of July and no one ate it. People would try it but wouldn't finish one. Ended up throwing most of it away. It might be better with regular cream cheese rather than the ricotta."
"I actually didn't stuff these but left it on the side with celery, carrots and pretzel rods. Folks loved it."
"delish! quick, easy, and cures the sweet tooth"
"I loved this snack, and will make it again real soon. Thanks!"
