“Posting this for a good friend that wanted my recipe!! These really are tasty lil buggers!! Came up with the idea from a box of crackers that must have been "drop-kicked" by some warehouse workers subbing it for a football! :S!! The crackers were pretty broken up, so made the best of them!! LOL!! Enjoy!! :)”
