Notes: I love to serve this as a main course but I also love to buy the small appetizer cups (which are available at any party supply store) and make a bunch of them as appetizers. The little cups you can purchase with lids in case you want to make them ahead of time. I also all the little plastic spoons but make sure you have a receptacle so that people can throw them away when they are done.

You may want to double and triple this recipe because it goes fast!
