Very good and easy to make. Substituted brown rice syrup for lite corn syrup and brown sugar for healthier snack.

Easy to make. Loved by non-gluten free eaters. used only 3.5 cups of Rice Chex instead of cinnamon Chex.

I needed to make a dessert for a gluten-free friend, and chose this. Instead of dried apples, I used a dried tropical fruit mix, and I thought it turned out very nice.
