Warning: This stuff is highly addictive! My store didn't have chocolate chex so i used all rice chex and drizzled both white and semi-sweet melted chocolate over the top. I also added mini-pretzels for some extra salty/sweet flavor. I started chowing down even before i got the chocolate on it though - just the caramel part is awesome! I made this for christmas gifts for coworkers but i'm going to have to make a second batch just for me!

I couldn't find chocolate chex so I used rice as some other reviews stated. I found this to be very boring. Maybe it would be better with the chocolate chex.

This stuff is to die for if you love carmel. I make it with 1/2 rice and 1/2 corn chex cereal and do not use the white chocolate glaze. Sometimes I add some cinnamon for a slight variation. Can't hardly keep the stuff in the house!! HIGHLY RECOMEND.

So. Addictive. I used corn Chex because our store does not carry fancy-flavored Chex, and after doing an all Chex batch I did one where I added popcorn and pecans. It was amazing. I also added some cinnamon and the pecans kind of roasted and became like those cinnamon roasted pecans at the fair. Delish.

This is very good, but looked in three stores and unable to find chocolate chex. So I used cinnamin chex and added cocoa powder. Yummy...

Love this stuff. I could not find chocolate chex so I used a combination of corn, rice and wheat. I also added 2 cups of pecans and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Next time I will add a full teaspoon of cinnamon for a little more spiciness.This stuff is too addictive...but in a good way:)
