Mini-Muffin Tins

Christmas isn't really over! Because we are exchanging presents with Big A's family today!  And with that said, we are going to eat, drink and be merry! Technically, it's Christmas!  Again.

Each family is bringing a dish - I hear Swedish Meatballs, Baked Swiss Cheese Dip, Veggies, and a Rye Boat are all on the menu.  I am making Mini Muffin Pan Appetizers.  They're yummy and sooo cute.  All you need is won-ton wrappers and mini-muffin tins -you can fill them with anything you like.  I had planned to make mini tacos, and when I mentioned it to my Mother in Law, she said she was craving Crab Rangoon.  Done.  Just put the filling in a won-ton wrapper in a mini-muffin tin!
