Cheesy Chive Crisps

"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.

    No, regular rice krispies do not make them sweet at all.

    I have a question. I assume the crisp rice cereal means rice krispie, but doesn't that make them awfully sweet?

    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.
