This is always a hit when I make it - a delicious combination of sweet and salty! I used to only make it in the fall, but then discovered Easter and 4th of July colored candy corn so now I make it year around. Whenever I take it to a potluck, I bring home an empty bowl!

Scrumptious. From the first year I made this, it was a hit with family and friends. I can't wait for the candy corn to go on sale and then get a deal on the Chex cereals in the fall so I can make this excellent recipe.
