Updated October 23, 2012

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

Steps

  • 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.

  • 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.
