This is a peppy variation of the popular cereal snack so many people like. This recipe makes a lot, but it goes fast. Make it a day or two ahead to allow the flavor to develop. If you should happen to have any leftovers, they freeze well (and taste great right out of the freezer!). Recipe from Redbook magazine.
