"I just made this for a Halloween Potluck I went to this morning. You can't go wrong with anything with cream cheese or guacamole, so I was confident this would be a winner. The tortilla chips turned out perfectly and the sour cream was a really fun and easy touch to make the spiders web. Everyone really enjoyed this. I't's an easy item to pack up and bring somewhere. Definitely a potluck winner here!"

"I like to test recipes as written so my review is on the actual product. The only changes I had to make were the shapes of the chips because I had other Halloween themed cookie cutters and the tortillas I used were flour ones because I couldn't find the flavored ones. That said it was very good. I love the combination of cream cheese and salsa so I knew that part would be good. I had never baked my own chips before and I have to say I am in love with it! Using the cookie cutters did take some time (I suggest metal ones over plastic because the tortillas are a little hard to cut) but I loved how they looked and on an average day cutting them with a knife would be very simple. I will definitely make this again and I don't plan on changing a thing."

"I didn't think the bat chips were worth the time, plus not sure how they go with a spider web. The dip tasted yummy and the web added enough "decor" without fancy chips."

"I didn't make the bat chips, but I made the dip and just bought tortilla chips. The dip was really good and so easy to make. I will for sure be making this again and again!"
