    In a separate saucepan, combine the brown sugar, butter or margarine, honey, and salt over medium heat.
    Stirring constantly, bring the liquid mixture to a boil, and boil for 1 minute.
    Remove the saucepan from the stove and stir in the vanilla and baking soda.
  2. Pour this mixture over the cereal mixture in the roaster pan. Stir until all of the dry ingredients are well coated.
    Bake for 45 minutes, and during this time stir the mixture every 15 minutes.
    Remove from the oven and then transfer to a very large bowl. Sprinkle the confectioner's sugar over the warm mixture and toss to coat thoroughly. Let cool and store in an air tight container.
