Thursday Treatz


(Note--now is a great time to stock up on your favorite Chex cereals- the big box store
has many flavors for $2 a box, almost half price. Stock up for the rest of the year,
the boxes have a long shelf life.)

Holiday Time is time to use Chex Cereal in all kinds of recipes!
Our favorite is 'Puppy' Chow for a sweet treat, Chex Mix is the favorite
salty treat, but the following is a yum addition to the menu.
The recipe is from the Chex cereal website. Check it out for more recipes:
