Spinach-Artichoke Bites and an Award!

I think it's pretty safe to say that Spinach-Artichoke dip is one of my all-time favorite snacks. So when I saw the recipe for that dip in bite-sized form, I saved it right away! Not to mention I already had some extra wonton wrappers just hanging out in my fridge.

These were very tasty, although I need to find a way to make the wontons a little crisper. I baked them as long as I could, but didn't want to burn them, so maybe brushing with an egg wash around the edges before baking? I will have to try it out and get back to you, but still, make these soon!

Spinach-Artichoke Bites
adapted from Daily Deliciousness
Makes 30 bites

30 wonton wrappers
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 box of frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
4 ounces marinated artichokes, drained and chopped
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup mayo
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
dash of salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat mini-muffin tins with cooking spray.

Mix cream cheese, spinach, artichokes, shredded cheese, mayo, and seasonings in a medium sized bowl.

Line prepares mini-muffin pan with wonton wrappers, lightly pressing into place to form a cup. Using a small spoon, fill each cup with mixture almost to the top.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, until edges are browned and crisp and the filling is hot and melty.
Let cool for about 5 minutes before serving.
All ready to go into the oven!

Looks delicious! I like the addition of artichokes...it's a very versatile recipe! The bottoms of mine didn't turn out very crispy, but the tops did...I might spray the bottom with non-stick spray first or brush the cups with butter to help that... :) Great job!
