    Heather'sKitchen's Note:

    This candy is crunchy and chewy and very sweet. It's one of my favorite treats at Christmas time. This recipe makes a large batch but it freezes very well. My grandma makes this in the microwave so I've included her microwave cooking instructions. I estimated the serving size to be about 1/4 cup.

      This stuff is addicting! I made it for a Christmas party at work and gave the recipe to more people than I can count. I did use Crispix cereal instead of the Rice Chex because thats what I had on hand. Thanks for a great recipe!

      For our family, this was too sugary-sweet without a lot of flavor. I even added an additional 1/2 tsp almond extract with the vanilla but it was still very bland. Thanks for posting!
