I was originally planning to make your Bailey's Brownies, but I realized that DH and I were positively buried in leftover holiday sweets, so I opted for this savory recipe instead. I'm really glad I did, because this stuff is addictive! I did have to make a few changes based on availability (and ability to fully open the recipe >:x ). I used Quaker Whole Hearts for the Cheerios, and pretzel twists instead of sticks (same taste, just different shapes). I couldn't locate any Bugles, so I used a mix of corn Chex and queso fundido flavored Cheez-It Zings (the Chex for a similar Bugles crunch, the Zings because they sounded good). I had mixed all the crunchies together last night, but DH wanted to watch a movie, so I bagged it and decided to coat and bake it today. When I went to check the recipe for seasoning amounts, I could only get the top half of the recipe to open, so I guessed 1 tsp of chili powder and 1/2 tsp garlic powder. AFTER I finished baking it, the recipe decided to fully load, and I noticed that I used double the seasoning. I think I will make all future batches with "screwed up" seasoning, because it was delicious! Thanks for posting this keeper, and sorry I had to sub so much (I'm now on a mission to find Bugles for when this batch is gone, lol)! Made for Sweet December Tag 2014

This has already become quite the popular snack here. It was easy to prepare and is a treat to eat! I added a bit more popcorn (because I ended up popping way too much) and added just a touch more butter because of that. My adult kids thank you!

Made this for a New Years Eve party. Simple to make and everyone liked it. I may try to increase the seasonings a little at a time. Thanks for posting.
