:( It had great reviews, I read the comments, learned a bit and yet?
They looked pretty, but their interior had a biscuit like quality. We did not like them at all. The dogs did tho'. They had lotsa' snacks last night. :)
Instead, we are making a Skippy Family stand by. It is one of our favorites and with the exception of a bit of white chocolate it is pretty healthy.
White Trash3 1/2 cups of cheerios
6 cups of Crispix cereal [or a mix of corn and rice Chex]
2 1/2 cups peanuts [we use unsalted]
2 cups of pretzel sticks [broken up]
2 bags of white chocolate chips
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Set aside.
Melt white chocolate in the microwave, stirring occasionally, until pourable. [Or melt in a double boiler on the stove.]
Pour chocolate over dry ingredients. Mix well.
Spread mixture out in a single layer on waxed paper. Let harden.
When hard, break into pieces, gift bag it and enjoy!
ETA: This was a huge hit on the band bus. Looks as tho' I will now be signing up for the last two trips too. heehee
