  1. Just made this today and my son loves it ! I did something a bit different I mixed the crackers in instead of putting it on top. I’m not huge with crunchy texture and it turned out really good. So easy to make. Thank you ! My house smells so good and it hardly took any time. I’m sort of getting into cooking more so this was great! I recommend it for the kiddos for sure.
