Excellent recipe! I added pecans, and didn't have a paper bag so just used a microwave safe bowl and stirred well after each minute. Perfection; thanks for posting this!

Excellent Recipe! I made this for Christmas gifts and was surprised at how popular it was. It has delicious caramel flavor, and is very easy to make. I also made one batch with a mix of corn and chocolate chex, because my corn chex box was only 14 oz. It had a great flavor, too. Stores well.
