Crispy,Crunchy Cheesies

Comment on this recipe

To add zest, I add a couple of drops of red pepper sauce. I sometimes also add ground nuts, red pepper flakes, or finely chopped olives or jalapeno, however, when adding either the olives or jalapeno, be sure to dry them on paper towels before adding to the cheese mix.

Ingredients

1 cup flour
1 cup crispy rice cereal, such as Rice Krispies
1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 stick or oleo melted

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Form teaspoonsful into soft balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 5 minutes. Check frequently -- they are best when just firmed, but not brown on the edges. Baking is the only tricky part, since they bake so quickly.
