"I'd prepared this recipe when I'd seen it featured for the first time in Taste of Home!

I DID adjust the ingredients to suit my tastes: I used 6 to 8 cups Apple Jacks
cereal, & if pecans aren't available, I used mini pretzel twists & 1 can of mixed nuts & 1 cup roasted peanuts. I took it to our fellowship time at our chapel & everyone
really liked it! This is a recipe I plan to prepare again-I got the ingredients to make it! Thank you, Virginia, for this recipe! Dawn E. Lowenstein"
