Recipe: Graveyard Crunch
It's the first of October, and you know what that means in this house: time to start decorating the outside for Halloween! :) I received this recipe in my email today and wanted to share it with everyone:
1/4 cup maple-flavored or pancake syrup
2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
4 cups POST Cocoa, Fruity or CINNA-CRUNCH PEBBLES style cereal
1 cup Dry Roasted Peanuts
2 cups Miniature Marshmallows
1 cup candy corn
1 cup candy-coated chocolate pieces
Preheat oven to 300°F. Place syrup, butter and cinnamon in large microwaveable bowl. Microwave on HIGH 1 minutes and then stir until the butter is completely melted. Add cereal and peanuts and mix lightly. Spread into lightly greased 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
Bake 30 minutes, stirring after 15 minutes. Cool completely. Break into pieces, then place in large bowl.
Add marshmallows and candies; mix lightly. Store in tightly covered container at room temperature.
Now I haven't made this yet, so I'm not sure how long it keeps or how many snack servings you'll get out of it (It uses the microwave, which I don't even have in the kitchen since I never use it lol) But it looks fun! I'll make it for our Halloween party.
30 days until Halloween! :)
