My husband's family has a tradition to make Nuts 'n' Bolts during the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. I love it -- except I wanted more flavor. And, they use the package of flavorings that come out at that time. I wanted to make more of it from scratch. I found this recipe in one of my favorite recipe books Brand Name Slow Cooker Recipes and More. But, don't double it -- the weight of the cereal will crush it into crumbles before it's done!
