Sweet & Salty Crispy Corn

This sweet and salty crispy corn is super crunchy and addicting! It’s my new favorite movie snack and they’re also great as toppings for oatmeal, ice cream, yogurt, and more! They kind of remind me of Frosted Flakes with a more pronounced corn flavor and less sweetness.

It’s super easy to make and they’re amazing to snack on!
