ScArEcrOw CrUncH

The fall time always brings fresh aromas of sweet treats to ones house. Well I know in our home, when the heat dies down the stove and oven come on. This recipe I am about to share is a no cook, just throw a bunch of stuff together in a jar type of recipe. Your kids will love it and it makes a great after school snack.

A Great Fall Treat

Ingredients:

pretzels (Waffle or sticks)

Peanuts or sunflower seeds (we used peanuts)

Honey Nut Cheerios and or Reese’s Cocoa Puffs

Cheese Its or Fish crackers

Caramel Popcorn (I used fiddle-faddle)

Dried fruits (raisins or crazins)

Optional Sweet Additives: (Pick a few)

Candy corn (gives it fall color)

Mini chocolate chips

Reese’s pieces (also adds great fall color)

Directions:

Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir and mix together, sometimes I use a large ziplock bag so that I can add ingredients and shake together. Kids love doing the mixing part.

I make a big batch up and place half of it in a tightly sealed zip lock bag and the other half in a large jar. My scarecrow crunch is great to eat but used as a fall decoration in my kitchen. Decorate your large jar with a fall like ribbon. The colors from the snack and ribbon give it a great fall look. Add the fun name “Scarecrow Crunch” to the outside with a chalk board sticker or scrap piece of paper!

Gift Idea:

Put in small mason jars, tie with a ribbon and put a label on it for a nice fall gift for a teacher or friend. Will do this as it gets closer to Halloween!!

Love:

The Andersen’s
