Recipe by Ducky

Saw this made on a Foodtv show and thought it would be fun to make with DS. We tried the other day and he had a glorious time. They are quite tasty too. Make these as spicy or salty as you want. Change the seasonings for totally different snack. Please note that they can quickly go from baked to burnt.

I was delighted to find this recipe because my DS loves goldfish but we can't ge them where we live. The taste was identical even though it didn't have the crunch of the cracker part. We loved it. Thank you for a wonderful recipe.
