As I lately have some time, I was looking on the internet last week. Trying to find fresh, exciting tips, inspiring meals that I've never tested before, to treat my loved ones with. Searching for a while but couldn't find too many interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I discovered this delightful and simple treat by chance at ambitiouskitchen. It seemed so mouth-watering on its image, that required prompt action.
It was not so difficult to imagine just how it's created, its taste and how much boyfriend will like it. Mind you, it is rather simple to please him in terms of treats. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyways, I visited the page and followed the precise instuctions that have been combined with superb snap shots of the procedure. It just makes life faster and easier. I could imagine that it is a slight inconvenience to shoot snap shots in the midst of baking in the kitchen as you will often have gross hands so I really appreciate the time and effort she devote to make this post and recipe conveniently implemented.
With that in mind I'm empowered presenting my personal recipe in a similar fashion. Appreciate your the concept.
I was tweaking the initial formula create it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to tell you it had been an awesome success. They prized the flavor, the consistency and loved getting a treat like this in the midst of a stressful workweek. They ultimately demanded even more, a lot more. Thus next time I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I'm going to multiply the volume to keep them happy.

This easy Cheese Crisps recipe, with Rice Krispies, makes savory cheesy bites perfect for holiday parties or tailgating.
As I was searching for my Aunt Jill's Cheese Straw recipe in one of my Aunt Carole's cookbooks, I ran across this recipe for Cheese Crisps (also referred to as Easy Cheese Puffs) which my Aunt Carole had noted was my cousin Hal's favorite. I couldn't recall ever trying these CheeseCrisps, made with Rice Krispies, but knew I must have had them at some point at one of our many family gatherings, so Aunt Jill's Cheese Straws had to wait a day to try this easy recipe out. Plus, I figured if it was a favorite of Hal's, it had been worth checking out.
Anyway, I suppose we did have a whole lot in common in the past. I was a tomboy. He was _ a boy. So , we had that. If Hal felt like arm wrestling, well, I was his girl.
Although Hal and I don't arm wrestle anymore, we did both grow up to have some things in common. For instance , we both want to cook. He is been known to make a mean batch of cookies and his pecan pies don't last long, so when I saw that these Cheese Crisps were one of his faves I knew I could depend on them to be good. And they are! They truly are good AND easy too. Crunchy, cheesy, with a hint of spice, these will be snatched up and gone before you know it. Obviously, you could always arm wrestle over the last one.
Rice Krispies Cheese Crisps Recipe
These easy cheesy bites are a great appetizer for parties.
Recipe type: Appetizer
2 cups puffed rice cereal (like Rice Krispies)
½ teaspoon ground red pepper
Preheat oven to 325-degrees F. Line baking sheets with baking parchment or silicone lined baking mat.
Combine all ingredients. Form into small balls, approximately 1-inch in diameter. Added to lined baking sheets about 1-inch apart. Flatten each ball slightly with a fork that has been dipped in water.
Bake at 325-degrees F for 12-14 minutes, or until lightly browned.
I did not use an electrical mixer and found it easy to combine all ingredients by mixing with my hands (clean hands).

These sound so good, we'll have to try them. Soon.
I think the Rice Krispies are an inspired means of achieving the unusual texture of cheese crisps - my mother is Canadian, and the crisps are a favorite with her family. I'll be fixing many of these as a surprise for her. Thank you so much for posting this recipe!!

I've made several variations with this recipe over the years and they are always a hit. My mother used to make them at Xmas and she'd make them really spicy with a half of a pecan pressed in the middle.
I missed using the dough hook helpful at all, but rather mixed the cheese, butter and flour in my Kitchen Aid using the paddle blade, then mixed in the rice krispies in by hand, careful not to smash the tiny kernels so your crackers would be crispier.
Baked at 350 for 15 minutes.
I made 1/2 the recipe, turned out great (a little greasy, but good).
I stored them in an air-tight container and they seemed a bit soggy on the second day.
I'm thinking of reheating (maybe 10-15 minutes) to see if they crisp back up and get the fresh baked flavor back. What is your storage tip to prevent this?
who is she, anyway? hi, I'm amy!
I'm tickled that you're here! Like you, I wear many hats, and live to share with about it. This space is a place for sharing food, home, garden, travel and lifestyle tidbits, with some fun always thrown set for good measure.
