This Italian-style appetizer is the perfect combination of salty and sweet. My kids gobble up the crisps even without the fruity dipping sauce!

"This was delicious!!! My favorite part was the dips. IT compliments the cheese crisps great. I did leave out the bacon b.c. I was short on time but the crisps still had lots of flavor."
