  1. In a large bowl, mix together the softened butter and cheese until well blended. Stir in flour, chives, salt, hot pepper sauce and garlic powder until thoroughly mixed. Stir in cereal. Divide the mixture into four parts, and roll into 6 inch long logs. Wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm, about 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Unwrap the cheese logs, and slice into 1/4 inch thick rounds. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until edges are crisp and slightly browned.

LOVE this recipe. For the sake of my ears I omitted the chives (didn't want to hear little ones complaining there was green stuff in their crackers). I also upped the garlic powder to 1/2 tsp and instead of the hot sauce I used 1/4 tsp cayenne powder which gave it a slight kick at the end, if you want some noticeable heat I'd use 1/2 tsp. It is fantastic and will definitely make this again. It turned out better than expected (I've tried a few of these types of recipes before and this one wins). Next time I will add some whole wheat flour. **I rolled the mixture in some plastic wrap, just put a pile on the plastic and close the wrap so none will escape, then shape it into a log - don't be afraid so smush the mixture together, it needs to hold together well in the fridge. When you slice it don't use a serated knife and don't saw the log, just slice straight down, some pieces may crumble but if you pack the mixture together well before you refridgerate it should be just fine.

Really good, and a great alternative to hydrogenated store-bought Cheez-its. I used fresh chives, chopped in the food pro, which was quick & easy, but a little slimy- made no difference in taste, though, so I'll do this again. I baked the first two rolls after refrigerating for 1 hour. I had to slice them thick but even then they kept crumbling apart. Make sure you squeeze the rolls tightly to compressed the mixture in the plastic wrap. I sprayed my sheet with Olive Oil, and flattened with my hand as others suggested. I spinkled them with coarsely ground sea salt just before baking. They weren't even completely cooled before most of them were gone, with my husband and kids around! What we did have leftover, he said were even better and more like store bought the next day, after the flavors settled. The next two rolls I sliced and baked after a couple days of refrigeration. With a sharp knife, this made the slicing 10x easier because the rolls were so much more firm, and I could slice them thinner, like 1/8" or less. And I'm sure I got more than 9 dozen. Thanks so much for this-- this was the first cracker recipe I tried, but I don't need to search any further! :)


OMG....YUM! I'm taking these to a party later today and I must have eaten twenty of them already! Based on everyone elses reviews (and thank you btw), I used a lot more hot sauce than called for, added about a half tsp. of cayenne, in addition to the two cups of cheddarI threw in a half cup or so of parm and only used half of the chives. These are really amazing and I thank you Nikki!!
