This is a great, kid-friendly recipe that will get your kids thinking about multiplication tables!  Not only that, but it would make a wonderful treat for the hard-working teachers in your child's life.  Teacher Appreciation Week is just around the corner.  Don't show up empty-handed!  Your kids can do the work themselves, package the snack in cellaphane bags and bright ribbon, and attach a thank-you letter.  I found this recipe off the box of cereal in the store, but added the salt.  I love sweet and salty combinations!
