Perfect for Parties, Member Babms

I made this last night, actually less than an hour before a party. I used multi grain Cheerios, Crispix, pretzels, also added Craisins and cashew nuts. I put it in the freezer for 30 minutes before breaking it apart. It turned out perfect. It's also good with mini marshmallows and M&M's. It's one of those basic recipes that you can add your favorites to that will 'make it your own'.
