Recipe Card: Samhain ~ Hallowe'en, All Hallows Eve, Shadowfest, Feast of the Dead ~ Oct 31st
1 Cup Dry roast nuts -- unsalted
1/3 Cup Butter
1 Pound Marshmallows
1/2 Cup Peanut butter
3 Cups Puffed rice cereal
1 Cup Apricots -- chopped
1 Cup Raisins
In a large bowl, combine cereal, apricots, raisins and peanuts.
In a microwave safe 13x9", melt butter and marshmallows on high for 2 minutes.
Stir; add peanut butter cook on high 2 minutes longer.
Stir until well blended, add cereal mixture to dish and toss until well coated.
Working quickly with greased hand, form into balls, using about 1/2 C mixture, per ball.
If mixture begins to harden, cook on high for 30 seconds, or until softened.
If desired, mixture may be spread in buttered 13x9" dish and cooled and cut into bars.
Makes 1 dozen balls or 2 dozen bars
NOTE: Similar to the Rice Krispie treats, but with the apricots and raisins it definitely
gives it a fall look. Another idea would be putting the mixture into cookie cutters, and
letting it cool. The shapes could be pumpkins, witches, etc. Add a little gel piping.
