If you can judge a food by how good it smells while you're cooking it, then these are amazing on that criteria alone. All that garlic and butter was heaven to my nose. It got even better when I tasted these little gems. So crunchy, so garlicky, so good! They're perfect dipped in hummous.

Yummy, thats what my friends said when I made them for a Packers get
together, served them with spinach dip. I had mini-bagel chips to use up, worked great.

Didn't want to have to mince real garlic cloves so I just used garlic powder with butter, and they turned out fine. 350 degrees for 15 minutes and let cool for about 10 minutes until they became crispy. Thanks!
