Recipe Notes

Serve them on a fun holiday decorated plate and you have the ultimate Christmas appetizer recipe! We used Monterey Jack Cheese for this recipe, but feel free to experiment with different types of cheese. I think that swiss cheese would be really good, or even pepper jack to give it a little bit of a kick!
