Nothing quite compares to this tasty bite sized finger food from childhood. What a fun recipe to include during a party that each guest, no matter their age, will enjoy! The accompanying maple black cherry sauce was a tasty addition that elevated the simple bites. If you have kids at home, having them help wrap the pigs into their "blankets" would be a fun way to include them in preparing the dish.
