Caramel Crispix in Microwave

Lois Payment


Found this recipe on while looking for some new snack ideas for a family party coming up. Couldn't keep my husband out of it! He loved it! It was so easy and quick. Hopefully there will be some left for the party...made two batches! I think you could use all peanuts if preferred. I found it broke up better when slightly warm too.
