Butterscotch-Rum Raisin Treats

I love making rum raisin rice pudding around the holidays. Those flavors inspired this recipe. Crispy rice cereal adds crunch, but nuts, toasted coconut or candied pineapple could do the job, too. —Crystal Schlueter, Northglenn, Colorado

    I love cluster type treats and thought these were great. They remind me of the recipe that won a million dollars in the Pillsbury bake off a few years ago! Since most clusters are chocolate flavored I like the twist of a creamy of butterscotch and rum flavor in this recipe. Very easy to make too.
