Halloween Party Treat

With Halloween just right around the corner I thought I would post a Halloween treat for you. 

Carmel Chex Mix

In a large paper bag mix the following:
1 16oz box of Rice Chex
1 cup slivered almonds
1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts

In a large sauce pan melt:
1 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar 
1/2 cup white Karo syrup

Bring to a rolling boil for 1 mintue. Remove from heat and add 1/2 tsp of baking soda. Mix well. Pour butter mixture over cereal in the paper bag. Be careful VERY HOT!! Roll top of bag shut and shake to coat the cereal with the butter mixture. Place in microwave and cook for 1 minute then remove and shake, place back in microwave and cook for 1 minute then remove and shake and finally place back in microwave and cook for 1 more minute and then shake again.

Cut open side of bag, pour mix out and let cool. Again be very careful it will be HOT! ( I like to stir my mix occasionally to brake in up a bit so its not in clumps...that way its easier to serve. )

I then added a little candy corn to each cone of chex mix. Which brings me to my next thing.... paper cones like these are a fun way to display your treats if you are planning to go to a party and are bringing something like chex mix!

All I did was cut out a 9 inch circle of scrapbook paper and lined it with tin foil 
(or you could use parchment paper too)
Roll it into a cone and add some ribbon and a tag! Halloween tags are everywhere in blogland if you don't have any on hand for yourself. Easy as that!!

You could even give this treat when you go visiting teaching before the end of the month ;). Or lets face it....keep it around the house for something to munch on!

  • Trick or should I say TREAT #6
