Caramel Crispix Crunch

My sister-in-law got this off of a Crispix box years ago and it is one of my very favorite snacks. It's a sweet version of a Crispix/Chex like mix, but much better. I can eat an entire batch in two days!

INGREDIENTS:
1 box Crispix
1 small jar caramel ice cream topping
2 tbls. margarine
1 cup toffee bits
1 cup sunflower nuts

DIRECTIONS:

1. Place ice cream topping in a large microwave-save bowl. Heat in microwave on HIGH 30 seconds. Stir until smooth.

2. Add cereal and sunflower seeds, stirring until evenly coated. Return to microwave and cook 4 minutes longer, stirring after each minute.

3. Remove from microwave and mix in toffee bits. Spread evenly on waxed paper lined baking sheet. Cool completely. Store in airtight container.

Options: Add mini choclate chips, Golden Grahams or pretzels.

Put on White Trash truffles...yummmm!
1 bag O'Oreos
1 8oz Cream Cheese
chocolate to dip in

Food process the crap out of the oreos. Blend with the Cream Cheese. Dip in chocolate. Enjoy a few before the chocolate hardens.
