"The extra crunch in these cheesy bites comes from crispy rice cereal. This recipe calls for freshly GRATED cheese, which means using a rasp-style grater, and NOT a box grater with large holes that results in shredded cheese. To make grating easier, make sure the cheese is very cold."

  • Note: you can tweak the amount of cayenne to your liking. Some like it HOT!
