I like pigs in blankets but this sounds more healthy, although I couldn't see it going down too well if I served them to hubby whilst I ate pigs in blankets, he would feel very hard done by. :lol:

Hi Leeza, the pigs in blankets are sausages wrapped in bacon. My hubby loves this kind of food and is not so keen on healthier alternatives, but I am helping him at the moment to lose weight and he is doing really well so healthier alternatives are what he gets.

So if I was to eat pigs in blankets while he eats healthy food he will feel all left out, don't worry your recipe sounds yummy and I shall try it, but won't tease hubby with the piggies. :lol: I will eat the same and then all is fair. :)

Leeza, do you have any good chocolate recipes?
