    It’s literally unreal how good these are! I followed the recipe then added 1/2 more onion powder and some garlic salt, maybe 1/2 tsp. I changed nothing else and this was absolutely so good. Doesn’t even come close to spaghetti-os because they are 1000x better. My expectations were pretty low given how few ingredients this was but wow! Will definitely make this again and again
