Recipe by CRYSTALINA Haldeman

I found this on the back of Kra*t caramels. I made it last night, it was easy and everyone liked it.

Thank you for posting this! I make it every year for my nephew at Christmas. It is addictive and everyone loves it (my nephew especially). I somehow lost the recipe--but I remembered it was simple. I use 8 cups of Rice Chex.
