Great tasting, savory crunchy snack food!!! From "Christmas 101" by Rick Rodgers. Great for gift giving! Tips: This recipe makes a lot, so be sure to use a big enough pan (I use one of those disposable turkey size aluminum pans). It also freezes well in an airtight container, or use freezer ziplock bags.

  4. Drizzle the butter mixture over the cereal, and toss gently to coat.
  5. Bake in the center of the oven, stirring every 15 minutes, for about 1 hour, or until heated through.
  6. Remove from the oven and cool completely.
  7. Store in an airtight container for up to three days, or freeze.
