"Made these as something fun for my toddlers...they loved them. Didn't use Velveeta - shredded cheddar - and they turned out great."

"Super! Used honey mustard because it was on hand and used shredded cheese instead since I didn't have Velveeta. Loved this recipe and will use again!"

"We don't even have kids but we love these! Cut the brown sugar a little bit and usually add a little bit of sriracha or other hot sauce. Going to try to find a way to make little appetizer bites out of these with smaller biscuits."

"Everyone loved them! Really simple to make. I made them with dinner biscuits, a little more brown sugar and Worcestershire sauce, and a little seasoning salt. I would definitely make this again."
