"This receipe has become a holiday gift for all the people in my office. I used to make it for a "treat" but everyone liked it so much I seemed to be making it every weekend (which I did not have the time to do for so many people). Now for the December holidays I make each person a special bag with this treat. I missed this December due to an illness and everyone was disappointed.

I vary the receipe by using 8 cups of cereals similar to Crispix and it works just as well. I have left out the pecans too for people with nut allergies and they don't miss them either. My hubby can eat this all on his own in just a matter of days and his coworkers really enjoy this receipe too. It is not difficult to prepare and I use disposal pans so I can make a lot at one time. I do find with so much in my oven I do have to let it bake slightly longer, but I've done the receipe so many times that I can tell when it is ready to come out."
