Years ago my friend Valerie gave our family a fun decorated paint can filled with some simple, fast and yummy Crispix cereal treat for Christmas. So I begged her for the recipe and it has become a yearly tradition for our family.
So, if you want rave reviews this year over your holiday baking I suggest you add this recipe to your collection and make a few batches for your family and friends.
A perfect treat to place in cellophane bags for simple gift giving.
