I've been making these for several years now since watching Paula make them on her show. Great snack for movie or game night, but also great to set out on the table at BBQ's and potlucks.

Thanks for posting...I don't have to go searching for my copy. Made these for the family reunion last summer. One of the cousins parked by the bowl all afternoon. Using the cheese sandwich crackers improves this "going around" recipe. Will be taking these to a Halloweeen party this weekend.
