I actually saw these around Pinterest and traced them back to the amazing Lauren from Lauren’s Latest, of course she rocks! :)   I made a few small adjustments and they were just as good as she promised.

I made a batch of these for our annual holiday get together with my hubby’s side of the family and they were a big hit. Well a little more than a hit, haha.  Seriously I suggest snatching one of these before you serve because these were gone in under 10 minutes :) .

They are a perfect little bite, enjoy.

These mushrooms look amazing. I can see why they don’t sit around for very long.
