Yummy, sweet treat. Loved the combination of ingredients. I boiled for 3 1/2 minutes, but when combined with the dry ingredients, it was too wet and sticky. Tried finishing it in the oven at 350 for about 15 minutes, but still too gooey. Probably should have boiled it longer or used a candy thermometer. Of course, we still ate and enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Made without the M&Ms, this was a really big hit (outta the park I'd say) at a recent family reunion. Everyone who tried sweet chex mix soon went back for more. The men of the family especially enjoyed this yummy snack.
