I thought these were great! They were cheesy, crispy, and a bit spicy. What more could you ask for? I used almost twice as much Tabasco sauce to get it spicy enough for me. The best ones were the ones that had just turned golden.
The taste was good, but the texture of the rice krispies I think was weird for us. My kids were the real taste testers as I was making it for them. My son (8) took one bite and gave it back, but he is fairly picky. The other (11) ate one and said they were ok, but she didn't want to eat anymore. I was really hopeful. Sorry. :(
