Monster Munch

Ok, I hope you guys are ready for a difficult recipe. This one is a doozy. You ready?!

So, to make Monster Munch, all you need to do is throw a bunch of stuff in a bowl and mix it together. I know. So complicated, but it’s oh so much fun for the kiddos and it’s really addictive and yummy! sI’m not going to lie, although this is really for little monsters, big monsters will love it too!

If you want to cut some of the sugar, then I would start with choosing a lower sugar cereal, such as plain Cherrios, Kix, or Chex. I would also omit or cut down on the candy corn. Although it totally rocks, let’s face it, it’s pure sugar deliciousness.

This recipe is so stupid easy, I’m just going to give you a list of ingredients that would work well. Whatever you decide to use, you really can’t go wrong because monsters will eat anything. Use your imagination and add any other ingredients you think would be fun. Serve it in a large bowl at your Halloween party or scoop some into cute treat bags or jars to give as party favors!

    What a tasty mix of sweet and salty – very colourful too. You know what’s so interesting… I almost never come across candy corn here in Canada… but I think it’s very popular in the States, yes?

    What a gorgeous looking loaf. I’m amazed you managed to tweak the recipe so healthily. Really, this is quite the achievement, Stephanie. Texture, above all, is important to bread and yours is spot on!
