Recipe Comments & Reviews

The cereal pieces become greasy and stale tasting due to
pouring melted butter on them. The M&Ms, peanuts, and

I made with the children in mind, thet love because of the coloring,soft chewy& crunch. They played games with it matching colors,shapes& browns of cource eating as much as seperating. Grandma, Grandpa,with other Children{that"s over 50] loved them too. I ran out that day, next time i"ll double it. Pleasing little children as well as older ones.
