I must make 50 batches of this during the year. My friends now call it "Crack" as it is addicting. Another called it "Meth" when he got some while it was warm out of the oven. I make this during the holidays and after the mix has cooled, I add candy corn to add some fun color to it. If you want a sweet and salty mix add pretzel sticks. It's also good drizzled with chocolate.
