To serve this recipe

You can use 5-oz. cups but also consider using even smaller 3-oz. cups as an appetizer size per guest.

Or, mix up the sizes as not everyone has a big appetite.

Alternatively, spoons will make your appetizers look mouth-wateringly gorgeous as well.
No matter which size you choose, these clear cups will showcase your hard work and you’re guaranteed lots of well-deserved compliments.
