Firecrackers – Spicy Mini Club Cracker Snacks

Spicy mini club crackers make the perfect summer snack paired with chilled Proscecco. So easy to make and pack on a picnic or an afternoon at the lake. Mionetto Prosecco DOC Treviso Brut is my “go to” prosecco in the summer. With aromas of golden apple, honey and white peach. It is a lovely apéritif, accompaniment to meals and bubbly cocktails. And it is such a fun bubbly to serve with Firecrackers!
