Critter Crunch

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Sweet Diva MJ

From Taste of Home. I made this for one of my children's birthday parties as it seemed like it would be a real kid-pleaser. I think the adults ate more of it than the kids did, though!

This was made for a party snack table and served in a big glass jar. I doubled the butter, brown sugar, & cinnamon, but honestly dumped selected items into the bowl for coating. I used two kinds of chex, two flavors of teddy grahams, pretzel sticks, and sliced almonds. After baking mini marshmallows and s'more flavored candy corn were added. The mix has a sweet cinnamon-y taste & we called it "snickerdoodle crunch" to fit the party theme. Thank you for sharing the recipe! :-)
