"This is some addictive stuff!!!!! Delicious!"

"After reading the reviews, we cut the butter in half and added a hand full (1/2 lb) of cashew pieces. The pretzel sticks lost most of the salt, so I suggest sprinkling kosher salt on top to taste. After spreading the mix, we put in the freezer for 10 minutes. No problem with the mix setting up and getting firm. The squares were a big hit at our Memorial Weekend gathering. This will be standard fare for our summer family gatherings!"

"Is there a reason why you use corn chex and not any other chex? I would think rice chex would be good because of the crispness."
