The holiday times are for fun and time with those you care about. It can get busy with all the events over the season and parties you have to go to. Dario and Anita enjoy time with friends and this bitesize piece of heaven that was a Rockstar. 

Easy to make and easy to eat. 

It is always nice having that one staple hit that you bring to the events and then it is always nice to have some new appetizer idea that everyone will love. 

You want to create that easy showstopper food that is different. 

Great for Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter or event you want to create in advance and have set to add toppings last minute if you wish. 

Make the whole appetizer piece and put in a proper tray to top when you wish.
