Notes

OPTIONAL ADD INS
  • M&Ms – Make sure to stir them in after it cools a bit at the end so they don’t melt!
  • Cheerios
  • Bagel Chips
  • Cheez It Crackers
  • Bugles
  • Cheetos
  • Popcorn
  • Goldfish Crackers
  • Garlic Powder
  • Tabasco
STORAGE
Once it’s completely cooled store it in the a air tight container. It will last for up to two weeks, but tastes the best when enjoyed in the first 2-3 days.
It’s also freezer friendly. Cool the mixture completely then store in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 months. We recommend a hard sided container instead of a bag so it doesn’t get crushed in the freezer.
EXPERT TIPS
  • When stirring make sure to use a gently hand so you don’t end up with a bunch of broken cereal.
  • Play around with the seasonings or even add garlic powder etc.
  • Make sure to stir while baking so it doesn’t burn and scorch. This isn’t optional!
  • Package it up in a festive tin and give it for gifts around the holidays.
  • You can mix and match the cereals and add ins as long as you have about 10 cups of them total.
