  • How to make Cup-Cuterie:  Buffalo Snack Mix makes a great base in Cup-Cuterie. Put about ½ cup snack mix in the bottom of 16 oz. clear plastic cup. Skewer assorted Italian cold cuts (e.g. salami, prosciutto, soppressata), cheese cubes, Mozzarella balls, pickles, olives, grape tomatoes, etc. onto 6” bamboo skewers, leaving space on one end for handling. Tuck into snack mix along with bread sticks or large cracker. Fill remaining gaps with fruit (grapes, strawberries, orange wedges etc).
