function arrayToHiddenInput(array $array, $exclude = null)
{
    $hiddens = [];
    $strParams = urldecode(http_build_query($array));

    if (!empty($strParams)) {
        $params = explode('&', $strParams);
        foreach ($params as $param) {
            list($name, $value) = explode('=', $param);

            if (is_array($exclude) && in_array($name, $exclude)) {
                continue;
            } else if ($name == $exclude) {
                continue;
            }

            $hiddens[] = sprintf(
                '',
                $name,
                $value
            );
        }
    }

    return implode(PHP_EOL, $hiddens);
}

Example:

echo arrayToHiddenInput(['data' => ['sub1' => 1, 'sub2' => 2]]);

Result:


Simple as that
