I know I told you the other day that I would be blogging about my Halloween costume (Craftora).  Well, we found out at work yesterday that we cannot dress up for Halloween.  So, instead I will be sharing about the treats I will be giving out on Monday to my friends and family for this fun day.

Last year about this time I found a recipe for Halloween Chex Mix.  I made it for family, friends and those at work.  It was a huge hit, so we decided to do the same thing this year after I got reminded about it when I found it on Pinterest.

Halloween Chex Mix

Makes approximately 36 servings (if put in cupcake holders)


8 oz. white chocolate baking bars, coarsely chopped or melting chocolate (I used the melting chocolate from Hobby Lobby)
4 cups of Corn Chex and Rice Chex cereal (2 cups of each)
1/2 cup raisins
1 cup Candy Corn
1/4 cup orange and black candy decors (I didn't measure these, I just sprinkled a little a each in the batch)

1.  In large microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate pieces uncovered on High for 1 minute 30 seconds to 2 minutes 30 seconds, stirring every 30 seconds, until melted and smooth.

2.  Gently stir cereal, pretzels, raisins and candy corn.  Add melted chocolate a little at a time, mixing with your (clean) hands. (I think this is the only way to get it mixed without breaking up the cereal and pretzels).  Add sprinkles while mixing in chocolate.

3.  Spread on waxed paper or foil until cool and chocolate is set, about 30 minutes.  Break into chunks.  Store loosely coverd.

 Chocolate ready to be melted in the microwave.

All the ingredients before the melting chocolate and sprinkles.

Everything mixed together.

Spread out on waxed paper to cool.

The finished product put in cupcake holders.

I placed a serving of the Halloween Chex Mix in a treat bag along with 3 different kinds of candy for the neighborhood kids that trick or treat at our house.  This is for the kids we know.  We always try to have a special treat for those sweet neighborhood kids.

Packed and ready for the ghost and goblins.  Have a safe and fun Halloween.
