These fancy-looking appetizers are ideal when entertaining large groups. The cute crunchy cups are stuffed with a cheesy pork sausage filling that kids of all ages enjoy. We keep a few in the freezer so we can easily reheat them for late-night snacking.

This is wonderful fast-to-fix munchie. The recipe makes a generous 24 cups and doesn't involve any cooking. It's a cinch to package in individual snack bags, keeps its crunch and is a savory alternative to the cakes and pies usually offered at bake sales.
Whenever I serve these make-ahead appetizers, they disappear fast. When a friend at the office shared them with me, I knew in one bite I'd be bringing her recipe home for the holidays. —Diane Martin, Brown Deer, Wisconsin
“I created this recipe for a Cinco de Mayo party, and it was a hit! It’s so easy, yet has a serious ‘wow’ factor. The creamy dipping sauce mellows out the shrimp’s heat perfectly.”—Mandy Rivers, Lexington, South Carolina
"My guests peeled rubber getting to the table to munch on Champion Chicken Puffs," says Amber Kimmich from Powhatan, Virginia. "These tender bites are made with hassle-free refrigerated crescent rolls and a flavorful chicken and cream-cheese filling."
My husband and I have company often. Keeping a supply of these frozen meatballs on hand means I can easily prepare a quick, satisfying meal.
