These are very similar to the cheese biscuits that a dear friend used to always make for parties. Delicious. Adjust the heat to your liking.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Oh wow... these are addictive. They are buttery and crunchy with the texture of a crisp cookie. The crisped rice cereal adds the crunch. Savory from the cheese with a slight kick of red pepper, these will be great for just about any occasion. Easy to make with simple ingredients, we promise you won't be able to eat just one. If you're sensitive to spice, cut back on the red pepper. They do have a slight kick.
