In honor of the apple-producing state of Washington, treat guests to this apple pie mix of Chex cereals.

Ingredients

3
cups Rice Chex™ cereal
3
cups Corn Chex™ cereal
1/2
cup walnut pieces
3
tablespoons no-trans-fat vegetable oil spread stick or butter
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1
teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2
teaspoon ground ginger
1/2
teaspoon ground nutmeg
2
cups dried or freeze-dried apples, coarsely chopped if necessary
1/4
cup white vanilla baking chips (2 oz)
1
teaspoon shortening

Directions

  • 1 In large microwavable bowl, mix cereals and walnuts.
  • 2 In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave butter on High 30 seconds or until melted. Stir in brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg uncovered for about 1 minute, until smooth and bubbly. Pour over cereal mixture; stir until evenly coated.
  • 3 Microwave uncovered on High 4 minutes, stirring after each minute. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool. Sprinkle apples evenly over cereal mixture.
  • 4 In small microwavable bowl, microwave white vanilla baking chips and shortening uncovered on High about 1 minute or until chips can be stirred smooth. Drizzle over cereal mixture; let stand until set. Break into bite-size pieces. Store in airtight container.

Expert Tips

Freeze-drying apples is another method of dehydrating apples. Freeze-dried apples will be crispier and lighter because they contain less moisture than regular dried apples.

For easy drizzling, spoon the melted white vanilla baking chips into a small food-storage bag. Snip off one tiny bottom corner and squeeze the melted chips over the cereal mixture.
