"I made this for appetizers for a Thanksgiving dinner for my O.W.L.S. (Older Wiser Loving Saints) at church and it was a big hit. Will make this again."

"This was sooooooo good, but I did it a little differently. I mixed EVERYTHING and put it in a bowl and let them spread it on crackers. Was a big hit! Will definitely make it again."
