These are a simple little bowls you can fill with anything you desire from savory appetizers to mouth watering desserts! I love them sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and then filled with vanilla or coffee flavored ice cream drizzled with some hot fudge sauce, perfect for Cinco de mayo but just use flour tortillas instead of wontons!
