I used Gluten-Free Chex cereal and Gluten-Free Pretzels, making this a great Gluten-Free Treat. There are also raisins, candy corn and fun Halloween sprinkles. And to hold it all together, and because chocolate makes everything better, I melted white chocolate Almond Bark. But you can certainly substitute whatever you have on hand or what your family likes best, using white chocolate is the best though.
