Pepper Jack Cheese Sticks Recipe
"If you see a group of people huddled around an appetizer table, it's probably because they're feasting on these fun snacks," writes field editor Darlene Brenden of Salem, Oregon. "The cornflakes give them a crisp coating, and the soft creamy center has just enough kick to liven up any party."
