Cheese Bites

On Tuesday, my mom and I decided to have an election "party" and we made a few appetizers.  This appetizer my mom had from Pampered Chef.  These were so delicious.  They are such a different appetizer then your typical appetizers, and were easy to make.  These are also great, because you can make them ahead.  They also pair GREAT with wine, which is always a plus.
