    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    This is a peppy variation of the popular cereal snack so many people like. This recipe makes a lot, but it goes fast. Make it a day or two ahead to allow the flavor to develop. If you should happen to have any leftovers, they freeze well (and taste great right out of the freezer!). Recipe from Redbook magazine.

      OooooWeeee!!Hot Stuff Coming!!! VERY SPICY mix ... I Love It! I must say though, I have always used butter not oil, especially not a cup and a half, so I was very skeptical about the outcome. The spices didn't blend well with the oil, I'm not sure if that's what was suppose to happen, but I poured it over the cereal mixture anyway, then poured the spices that were left at the bottom of the pot over that and baked as per the instructions ... What do you know? Everything turned out just fine. My co-workers are going to love this ...Thanks Lorraine ;)
