Delicious! I used 8 oz of chocolate and found that plenty. I also added another cup of cereal for a variety. This alliwed it to be sepersted and not globs. If you it looks like it's going to be to thick add more ingredients to spread it out. Read More

Tastes great but IMO there is way too much white chocolate. Once hardened it was impossible to break it apart in a presentable manner. I would either downsize the white chocolate to 9 oz. or add an additional cup of chex and cup of pretzels. Fun to snack on but it is a very thick coat of white chocolate. This recipe might work better if you were making "haystacks" out of the mixture. Read More

Definitely good. I cut the recipe in half. I've had similar before but I realized once I made this what I was missing.... captian crunch collosal berries! My district manager made this for us one year and hers had NO NUTS but had the captian crunch. I will be adding that next time. Sooooo good Read More
