Halloween Candied Gorp

Monstrously Good! Self control was nonexistent, so I had to wrap it up to give away!

Halloween Candied Gorp

Halloween Candied Gorp 2   Halloween Candied Gorp 3

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.
