It’s really simple to make, and seems to come around more frequently during the holiday season. Today, I decided to make some, and put a Halloween spin on it!2014-10-24 18.04.19

Ingredients: 2014-10-24 17.32.46

¼ cup peanut butter

1 tbsp butter or margarine

½ tsp vanilla

Powdered sugar (approximately 1 cup)

2/3 cup candy corn

2. Once chocolate/peanut butter mixture is melted, add in vanilla and stir.

4. Once chocolate/peanut butter mixture is combined with cereal, slowly add in powdered sugar, and stir until there is a dusting coating all cereal squares. Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes so chocolate mixture can cool.2014-10-24 17.46.43
