Very good. I found the mini muffin cups hard to fill so I used the regular ones. Not as pretty, but much easier.

MY REVIEW

I made this recipe for a party and it was a great success. It took me 15 min to prep. I didn't precook the wontons, just put the mixture in the wontons and cooked for 13-15min.
