    1. I am so sorry these didn’t turn out for you. If you find the salt is too much, simply decrease the amount of garlic salt in the recipe, or use garlic powder instead.

    1. Hi Heather, we used saltine type crackers but you could always use Ritz and get a little different flavor. Either should work. Enjoy!

    1. Thanks for letting us know Deb. I think it can depend on the size you make them as well. Sorry it was less than you expected but I hope you enjoyed the ones you did get!

  1. I made these for my son’s birthday party and they were a huge hit with the adults and kiddos (ages3-9)! I had 2 people ask for the recipe and now I’m making them again for 2 events we’re attending this weekend. I use whole wheat Panko instead of crackers, and minced garlic to cut down on the salt. Thanks for a great recipe! It’s quickly becoming a favorite. (Also, I doubled the recipe the first time around and it yielded about a million, lol! One batch is plenty.)

    1. That is so good to hear! We love making these around the holidays and for parties too! They are a huge hit. Happy to hear that the kiddos were loving them just as much as the adults!

    1. It is suggested to freeze first and then cook, but if you want to cook these the day before, put in the fridge and then reheat for your party, they should be fine.

    1. You’ll thaw them in the fridge then place onto a baking sheet and bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned. Enjoy!
