The Easiest Party Appetizer Ever!

This is the easiest and tastiest party appetizer I have ever made.

Make this, allow it to chill, and I promise it will be a hit at any gathering you attend.

My husband and I have even made this a meal during the summer months when we did not really want to cook anything.

This recipe was given to me, by a neighbor, over 10 years ago. 

She was surprised, I had never heard of this delicious treat.

Using three pantry staples, anyone can make this and be a hit at the next friendly get-together.

I allow mine to chill for at least three hours for best texture and firmness.

If I know we are going to have a heavy late lunch, I can make this for a great late evening snack. 

It does not sit heavy and you can control your portions. Ideally paired with Carr’s Water Crackers.
