This was very easy to make and turned out delicious! I switched the candy pumpkins for candy corn and left out the peanuts. Also had help in the kitchen from a 7-year old who really enjoyed measuring out the cereal, so it is fun to make with kids!
sounds great and easy to make, will make for Spooky Crazy Bunco this weekend.
@cporzio you could try pretzel nuggets, oyster crackers, or mini hard breadsticks. I can't wait to try this!!
This is so much fun to make! My family and I enjoy it very much!
I changed to peanuts to unsalted pretzels. That way it is safe to send to school...
