  2. So, very easy and so yummy. Didn't have enough cereal so added pretzels and nuts. Can't wait to make more ??

  5. Excellent Recipe! I made this for Christmas gifts and was surprised at how popular it was. It has delicious caramel flavor, and is very easy to make. I also made one batch with a mix of corn and chocolate chex, because my corn chex box was only 14 oz. It had a great flavor, too. Stores well.

I love to do Counted Cross Stitch, Knit, flower gardening, cooking and spending lots of time with my grandchildren. Hence the name Nana in the woods. I live in Northern Mn and the grandkids call me NaNa. The picture is of the deer that come to visit us on a daily basis due to the fact we feed them in the winter months. Oh yah I forgot to mention I'm also an animal lover. I'm married have 1 child and 2 stepchildren and the best part is I have 3 grandchildren. This website is great I'm always looking for new recipes and love to share mine. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting">
