This week most of my recipes will be of the yummy treats I made for our football party. Today's recipe is my Apple Pie Chex Mix! (Find the original recipe here)
3 Cups Cinnamon Chex cereal
3 Cups Rice Chex cereal
1/2 Cup crushed walnut pieces
1/4 Cup butter or margarine
1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups dried apple chips, crumbled up
1 cup white chocolate baking chips
3 tsp shortening
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix together the two cereals and the walnuts in a large bowl. Set aside. In a 2-cup measuring cup melt the butter, then stir in the sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg and microwave for another minute (or until bubbling). Add in the vanilla and pour over cereal mix, stirring until coated.
Microwave cereal mix for four minutes, stopping after each minute to stir up the mixture. Lay the cereal flat on the baking sheet and top with the crumbled apple chips. Melt together the white chocolate chips and the shortening for about 60 seconds, or until smooth enough to drizzle easily. Using a spoon, drizzle the chocolate onto the cereal and apples. Refrigerate for at least one hour, or even overnight, before serving. Break apart and enjoy!
These are the bowls I use for this recipe.
This is the best chocolate (I think) to work with:
And just in case you need a baking sheet:
What are your plans for the Super Bowl? Are you hosting a party or attending a party? Or are you like "What's football?" :)
