This stuff is so good! Instead of having two boxes of Chex cereal leftover after making this, I just used 9 cups of Rice Chex. Now just have a little leftover and you couldn't tell.

Oh, yum! I love Chex cereal. Such a bonus that this recipe is gluten-free, because it's so hard to find yummy GF snack recipes. Thanks, Donna John ! #yum

First let me say these are great. I have saved and used more of your recipes than any others I have run across lately. This one finally got me to sign up and comment.

I did make a couple of changes since I didn't want cinnamon. I used some sea salt instead and added a splash of vanilla to the caramel when it came off the burner.

Think next time I'll add some salted peanuts and maybe some mini pretzels.

Thanks and keep up the good work.
