Pretzel Cereal Crunch

A festive container of this salty-sweet treat was left in my mailbox several Christmases ago—and disappeared in a twinkling! My neighbor shared the quick and easy recipe. I've since added peanut butter because I love that flavor! —Cindy Lund, Valley Center, California

    Try using 2 tablespoons of veg oil when you melt the chips. For peanut free, don't add the nuts or the peanut butter.

    Could not get the white chocolate chips to melt ended up a big glob. What did I do wrong? sounds good if only the chocolate would melt.

    This sounds great but I would like to know how the original recipe read so I can make it for my nephew who is allergic to peanuts.

    This was very good! Next time I would use honey nut cheerios instead of the apple cinnamon. Oh, I also added ~1.5 cups of marshmallows and 1.5 bags of white chips to accommodate them.

    This was really good even without the nuts. I left them out so my 18 mo. old could enjoy this snack too. My 4 yr old had fun helping me make it!
