**We made it last night to take to the football game. We left with 5 quart size bags and only came home with one. It was gone this morning. So today we made it again, with some revisions. We added some Chex cereal and some of those tiny soup crackers and cheerios. We also leave out the candy corn. Just be sure that you don't cook the mixture too long as you will not see it fowm when you add the baking soda. It should about double in size. The first time we made it it didn't. The second time it did. So just don't cook too long.**
