"We did change this slighty because my kids do not like green peppers. We used a cherry tomato for the nose instead. They LOVED this recipe, it is very good and easy to make."

"not a bad idea but you'd have to slice the biscuit first, fill it and crimp the sides, or put them in the fridge for next time, or eat 'em on the side."

"The recipe only calls for 12 slices of pepperoni and olives, 2 for each bear. There is no "rest" of them."
