Growing up I spent a lot of time at my Grandparents houses, being the only grandchild for many years often meant I got to try all sorts of tasty treats at everyone’s house. Crispix Snibbles was one of those tasty treats I got to enjoy often.

What are Crispix Snibbles?

Crispix Snibbles are cereal coated with a caramel coating, and lots of salted peanuts are added to this mixture. It is a lot like Cracker Jack or candy-coated popcorn. This recipe made with cereal so the bite-sized pieces crispy, and the variety of the rice and corn pieces of cereal make for a great treat.
