Candied Whiskey Bacon Grilled Cheese Dippers are the PERFECT appetizer recipe for New Years Eve.

Can you believe we are already talking about New Year Eve? What to wear, where to go, and most importantly WHAT TO EAT!! I always get pretty sentimental around January 1st…thinking about all that has happened in the last 12 months and thinking ahead to new year. The countdown to midnight is on, and 2016 will be here before we know it. Time to eat lots and lots of great food before we all pretend to make New Years resolutions!
