"These snack bites are great to keep on hand for guests," says Eve McNew of St. Louis, Missouri. Since the recipe makes a lot, you might want to freeze some of the cheese logs for future use. Be sure to thaw them in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours before slicing and baking.

"I really liked these but it has a very strong cheddar flavor....too much for my family. I will try using mild cheddar next time."

"These are really good, but an extremely intense flavor. I also froze a few of the logs and baked them later, and they still came out as good as the 1st time."
