Happy Fall Y'all, Fall Goodies, Scarecrow Crunch

Happy Fall!

We really do not get fall in Florida. We get slightly nice weather season, let's call it pre-summer (Jan-March), super F'n hot summer(late march-October), rainy season and hurricane season (the rest of the dang year). Yea.. Why do I still live here again?

Well I decided this year we are having Fall Y'all! I am going to make one new treat from Pinterest or a random cool recipe I find a week and post it here.

Last night my Bitty and I made Scarecrow Crunch! It's way too sweet for me but she likes it!

What you will need:
-4 squares of white Almond Bark (or 8 oz of white chocolate)
-4 cups of Chex Rice cereal
-2 cups of  small pretzels (your choice on shape)
-1 cup of candy corn M &Ms and Reses Mixed
-1 cup of candy corn (we added two kinds, fall mix with pumpkins and s'mores flavor)
-1 hand full of fall colored sprinkles
-Glass mixing bowl (or any microwave safe bowl that will hold everything for mixing)
-Rubber Spatula
-Wax Paper
Melt your almond bark according to the directions on the package, typically 90 seconds adding 10 and mixing until smooth.
We first added the Chex, followed by the pretzels, then all the candies, making sure to coat each well in the almond bark. We added the sprinkles last and laid out the mixture on wax paper to dry for a good hour before we stored it in a gallon Ziploc bag. You could start eating it at the 1 hour mark, but we are saving it to share with friends.
Tonight we are making Puppy Chow. Not a new food adventure but it will go nicely with the scarecrow crunch when I share it at work. :) Now I will not give away my secrets on why my Puppy Chow so awesome that people as far as New York request that I make it and send it, just know you are missing out! hahaha :) You pay for supplies and shipping and I will make you up a batch any time. :)
I need to recap our cruise some time this week if I get the chance, so be on the look out for that!
