I am revisiting this recipe because it is such a favorite! This time adding a couple more ingredients. Warning, once you start eating, you may not be able to stop.

5 cups Golden Grahams cereal

1½ cups honey roasted peanuts

Colored Sprinkles (optional)
M&M candies (optional)
In large bowl, stir together Rice Chex, Golden Grahams, coconut, peanuts, almonds, and chow mein noodles. In saucepan over medium heat, stir together butter, sugar, and corn syrup. Bring mixture to boil and continue cooking to”soft ball” stage…about 235° on candy thermometer. Pour hot syrup over cereal mixture in thin stream in stages. After each addition of syrup, gently fold and stir until all ingredients are well coated. If you want to add sprinkles, M&Ms, or other candies continue stirring until cooled enough to add and not to melt. Spread mixture out onto silpat lined baking sheet to cool completely. Store in airtight container.
12 cups popped popcorn
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
Gel food coloring of your choice
1/2 tsp baking soda
Preheat oven to 225°. Lightly spray baking sheet, set aside. Put popped popcorn in large bowl. In medium saucepan over low heat, melt butter. Stir in corn syrup and sugar. Bring to boil stirring constantly, turn heat down to simmer to keep the mixture boiling and cook 3 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in food color and baking soda. Pour candy mixture over popcorn and stir to coat completely. Spread popcorn out on prepared baking sheet. Bake in oven for 40 minutes, stir every 10 minutes. (*I skip the oven part and it turns out great and saves a lot of time. I stir gently and break apart into little bitesize popcorn balls as it cools). Remove from oven and stir popcorn gently as it cools. Recipe from ourbestbites.com.
Sometimes I just feel like dipping! My husband and I have a favorite grab-and-go snack, peanut butter crackers. We have done a taste test of all the different brands and have our favorites. My husband prefers Keebler and I prefer Munchies by Frito-Lay. I believe it’s safe to say that we would eat any brand when it’s chocolate covered. After covering quite a few peanut butter crackers in chocolate, I start thinking what else needs a coat of chocolate? Tortilla chips. Oh my goodness, yummy! Please try it sometime. Then, when you have some melted chocolate left, throw in some nuts and raisins to coat and make clusters. This time I threw in almonds and dries cranberries. Happy snacking!
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
2 tsp shortening
In a double boiler over medium heat, melt chocolate and shortening, stirring until smooth. Turn heat down to low or turn off (can turn back on if chocolate starts to set up). When I dip, I use two forks to pick the item up and let excess chocolate drip off. For clusters, use a spoon. Set on sheet of wax paper on a baking sheet to set up. To set up quickly, put in refrigerator for about 15 minutes.
2 cups pecan halves
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips
Arrange pecans on a silpat lined baking sheet (or use wax or parchment paper). In saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in sugar, water, and salt. Cook, stirring constantly, until mixture reaches 300° on candy thermometer. Pour in a small stream evenly over pecans. Quickly sprinkle mini chocolate chips evenly over toffee. Let sit to set up. Break into pieces when completely cooled and chocolate chips are solid again (they melt just enough while sitting on the warm toffee to adhere to the candy).
Monstrously Good! Self control was nonexistent, so I had to wrap it up to give away!
1/2 cup honey roasted peanuts
1/2 cup golden raisins
1/2 cup almonds
1/2 cup broken pretzel (pretzel sticks broken in thirds)
1 cup Reeses Pieces
10 Halloween Oreos, coarsely chopped
1 pkg (16oz) CandiQuik Vanilla Candy Coating (or the like)
In a bowl, mix together peanuts, raisins, almonds, pretzel pieces, and Reeses Pieces. Pour out onto silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet, arrange neatly. Place Oreo pieces evenly in with other ingredients, gently pressing and creating an even, level, organized pile ;o) . Place a quart size ziplock bag in a tall glass, folding over around the edge. Melt CandiQuik as directed on the package until totally liguid. Pour into prepared plastic bag, remove from glass. Hold securely and snip off one corner of bag and drizzle melted vanilla candy evenly over gorp mixture to cover. Using rubber spatula, lifting up and down, gently push the candy coating down into the gorp so when set up it all holds together (don’t stir, it will ruin the nice look of the candy). Let sit to set up. When set, break into pieces.
