November most definitely screams Apple Pie and this crunchy snack mix would go perfect in the lunch box and it's sooooo good!
Apple Pie Snack Mix
3 cups Cinnamon Chex (if generic existed, I would have used it)
3 cups Rice Chex (I did actually use generic here)
1 cup toasted walnut pieces
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 T. molasses
3 T. butter
1 t. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
2 cups freeze dried apples, coarsely chopped if needed
8 oz. vanilla yogurt raisins
In a large bowl mix cereals and walnuts. Set aside.
In a small bowl combine sugar, butter, molasses and spices. Microwave for 1 minute, stir, then microwave for 30 more seconds.
Pour over cereal mix and toss until evenly coated. (or as best as you can, I never feel like I can toss quickly enough for a good coating)
Microwave for 4 minutes but stop every minute to toss. After 4 minutes of cooking, spread on cookie sheet to cool. When cool add apples and yogurt raisins and toss one last time.
Store in airtight container.
