Sweet ‘n’ Crunchy Mix

My kids like snacks with a lot of crunch. So I combined a few of their favorite ingredients for this recipe, and it was an instant success. In fact, I've become famous in our neighborhood for this simply delicious mix. -Amy Briggs, Zimmerman, Minnesota

    I added chocolate cheerios to this mix. I also doubled the butter and brown sugar. I left out the cinnamon because of the chocolate cheerios. My family loves it.
