MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 14, 2012

"Asolutely delicious! Works well with Wheat Thins or bacquette bread. I made the day before so it had plenty of time to marinade, a real hit at parties."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 24, 2011

"My 11 year old daughter made this to bring to Christmas Eve dinner and got rave reviews 2 years in a row. Definitely takes some time to combine the cheeses and smooth out the "stacks", but well worth it!"
