MY REVIEW

Made these for Christmas day appetizers. I received many compliments on them, even though I actually forgot to put in the hot sauce! The only advice I have, which I discovered after trying to cut them up, is to put the rolls (on the sheet) in the fridge for a few minutes to firm up. This made them a bit easier to cut, without getting all squished up. I am making these for New Year's Eve now - not sure if I will add the hot sauce this time or not. Thanks for posting this recipe!!

My husband is diabetic so I always take an appetizer he knows he can eat when we get together with family and friends. This is one of his favorites. I cut the amount of hot sauce in half and use left-over roasted chicken.

I made these at a Christmas Tree decorating party and everyone thought they were wonderful. They are very easy and quick to make.
