When my kids were small we had fondue each New Year’s Eve.  Now they are grown and out on their own, I really wanted to continue the tradition.  My husband thought I was nuts to prepare fondue for just the two of us so I asked some friends over to partake with us.  As you know fondue is great but you still need a few small appetizers to get things going.  I have made these shrimp/crab appetizers for years and they are delicious!  The original recipe called for puff pastry but  I found we all liked them much better with the biscuits.  You can sprinkle with paprika or I like to egg wash half of the biscuits and top with black sesame seeds.  Enjoy!!!  For comments/questions email ramona@lowfatdivablog.com
