halloweenmix

This spooky version of Chex mix is the perfect addition to any Halloween party.

Ingredients

for the mix:
5 cups Chocolate Chex cereal*
1/2 cup ALDI Southern Grove Plain Pepitas or Pumpkin Seeds
1/2 cup ALDI Southern Grove Honey Roasted Peanuts
1 1/2 cup broken ALDI Specially Selected Vanilla Pizzelle Cookies
1 cup Halloween mix (like Brach’s Mellowcreme Autumn Mix)*
3 tablespoons ALDI Countryside Creamery Unsalted Butter
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Ingredients:

Pre-heat oven to 250.

In large bowl, mix cereals, nuts and pizzelles. Set aside. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Melt the butter in a small pot.  Stir in seasonings. Pour over cereal mixture; stir until evenly coated.

Pour the cereal mix on a lined baking sheet and bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Spread on paper towels to cool, about 15 minutes.

Store in airtight container.

*Quick notes about ingredients:

Aldi often has chocolate Chex. If not, Amazon Pantry sells Chocolate Chex or use Rice Chex or Millville Rice Squares Cereal and toss 2 teaspoons ALDI Baker’s Corner Cocoa Powder in with the rest of the seasoning. Aldi often has  Brach’s Mellowcreme Autumn Mix near Halloween but ALDI or other brand candy corn can be substituted.
