Questions & Replies

  1. What size box of Crispix.? My recipe says "box" but no ounces. Or how many cups?


  1. ??? Questionable, I've Been making this for 15-20 yrs. This year Not sure what happened. Our Recipe calls for Boiling at Rapid Boil for 5 min stirring constantly!! But we seemed to get a little too hard in spots??? Does anyone know what point you are to take the Caramel to....?Soft Ball? Hard Ball? Soft Crack? ......We'v always just done 5min. Never had a problem before, It's a HOLIDAY tradition!!
  2. Very easy to make! Be sure to use a LARGE pot, as the mixture will foam to double the size! Added pretzels and honey roasted peanuts after mixing in caramel and re-mixed before baking. Yummy! Be sure to 'fold' in caramel, not 'stir', as it will decrease Crispix breaking up.
  3. Made this as a snack to take along camping. I had trouble mixing in the boiled mixture into the cereal without the cereal crumbling, however it still tasted good. Thanks for posting!


  1. I added about 2 tablespoons of vanilla to mine and it was absolutely delicious. Will be making this for holidays and such. Thanks for the recipe!

My family is into scuba diving. While I don't dive I usually tag along to help out. This year they dove in Lake Superior (39degrees) and the warm tropical waters of Grand Cayman. I love anyplace tropical-my favorite so far is Grand Cayman.</p>
