Sweet, Savory and SKINNY Pigs in a Blanket

 These are mouth-watering and delicious.  The smokey sausage & mild brie wrapped in a soft and flaky croissant, then drizzled with honey and salt just begs forgiveness for its indulgent taste!  But forgive not because these treats are just as low-calorie as they are tasty.  Serve on and your guests will love you for it!Skinny Sausage in Blanket 021
