    I have a host next week who is interested in a "pink" recipe for HWC, but she wants an appetizer. I've found a lot of pink desserts, any suggestion for pink appetizers? What do you guys think of Clubhouse Chicken Squares (my favorite recipe) with the cream cheese mixture tinted pink with food coloring? Would that work okay? Thanks for the help!

    I'm making the Spicy Shrimp Ceviche Cups. I figured the shrimp is pink, right?

    Here are two recipes I got from my cluster in an email for "pink recipes" I only gave the two that are appetizer like. Hope it helps!
    Berries & Cream Wonton Cups

    (It's Good for You Cookbook)

    24 square wonton wrappers

    1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
    2 tablespoons granulated sugar
    1 container (8 ounces) low-fat strawberry yogurt
    1 1/2 cups thawed, frozen whipped topping, divided
    1 cup raspberries
    1/2 cup blueberries
    2 teaspoons powdered sugar

    Directions:

    Preheat oven to 350° F. Using Pastry Brush, brush one side of each wonton wrapper with melted butter. Sprinkle wontons evenly with sugar using Flour/Sugar Shaker. Press each wonton, sugared side up, into cups of Deluxe Mini-Muffin Pan. Bake 6-8 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Remove wontons from pan to Stackable Cooling Rack; cool completely.

    Place yogurt in Small Batter Bowl; fold in 1 cup of the whipped topping. Attach closed star tip to Easy Accent Decorator; fill with remaining whipped topping.

    Using Small Scoop, scoop yogurt mixture into each wonton. Top each wonton with one raspberry and two blueberries. Garnish with whipped topping; sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.
