"Delicious appetizer. I made this for a party that was cancelled at the last minute, so I served it with dinner as a first course. My niece commented that she thought it would be too messy for a party appetizer since it was pretty loaded with toppings. I think as long as small plates are used ; rather than just a cocktail napkin it would be fine."

"Too many flavors going on. Barely tasted shrimp. Maybe because I cut the Shrimp in thirds to make cutting it into squares easier"

"I made this for the first time and served them at a cockatail party. They went almost untouched and the few that DID try them, did not like them. I didn't like them either!"

"I'm not a big fan of cocktail sauce, but these were delicious! I lightened them up using red. fat crescent rolls, red. fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), and reduced fat sour cream. I'm hoping to find a red. fat Monterey Jack cheese!"
