Spinach Artichoke Bites

My step-daughter is getting married tomorrow!  It's been fun watching her grow over the years into a beautiful, smart and successful young woman.  Her husband-to-be is a wonderful guy, and we are thrilled to have him as part of the family (officially anyway).  We are looking forward to celebrating this special day with them tomorrow - so exciting!

Today, however, I am sharing with you a cute little appetizer.  I love finger food type appetizers, or appetizers that you don't need a plate for.  Especially if you are at a party - it's nice to grab little bites and keep moving around the room without having to carry a plate.  This appetizer is the perfect finger food, and it is absolutely delicious.  I couldn't stop eating these little bundles of joy, and each one seemed like it tasted better than the last.  So, if you are throwing a party, impress your guests by serving these yummy little bites.

Put together the spinach artichoke dip, but don't bake it.  Preheat oven to 325. and spray 3 mini muffin pans with cooking spray.  Press the wonton wrappers into each little cup of the muffin pan until they are all filled.  Place the pans in the oven and cook for about 8-10 minutes or until they just start to get golden brown around the edges.  

Remove pans from oven and spoon the spinach artichoke dip into each little cup until they are all full.  Cover each pan with a piece of aluminum foil, but tent it so the foil isn't touching the the pan in the middle.  Place in oven and cook for 12 minutes.  Remove foil, then cook another 2-4 minutes, or until mixture starts to bubble and the edges are browned, but not burned.  Remove from oven and place each bite onto a serving platter.  This recipe should make about 36 little bites, but it really depends on how much filling you put into each one.
