Putting bits and pieces together

Halloween is a fun time for both children and adults. It is a time to have parties and to go along with the theme of a Halloween Party why not serve refreshments that have fun, spooky names?

I have learned over the years that just because you talk about snacks, that does not always mean they need to be unhealthy and horrible for the waistline. Making treats from cereal, dark chocolate and nuts mixed with some marshmallow (I know marshmallow is almost pure sugar) but the rest of the recipe has more of a healthy undertone. As long as you eat these treats in moderation, why not have fun with them!


Autumn Season

When the Autumn season is close at hand, not only does my Halloween Spirit come alive but all of the things I love to do; also awakens. I love to cook and I love to bake, both things I do not do a lot of in the summer especially living in the South. I love to create new recipes and trust me if I did not have a fantastic husband who was not afraid to try new things, my cooking abilities would not go very far. Of course I usually never tell him what he is eating until after I get a response from him if he likes the dish or not! There has only been a few things I have made that he was not crazy for not bad for nine years. Two of the dishes I did not like either, so it all worked out good.

When we look through our pantries often we will have little bits of this and that tucked away in the back corners. Often cereal is one of the main things. If you use your imagination, the cereal could turn into a yummy treat just by adding a few extra ingredients. That is how I created “Witches Logs”.

Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Bag Mini marshmellows
  • 6 cups Broken pieces of Cheerios
  • 1/2 bag Mini Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 cup Chopped Walnuts
  • 1 large bag chocolate chips, melted

Cook Time

  • Prep time: 30 min
  • Ready in: 30 min
  • Yields: depends on the size you cut them
  1. Place your Cheerios into a large zip lock bag and take a rolling pin and go over the bag a few times to break up the Cheerios. You do not want them powdered just a little broken
  2. Place the butter and marshmallows into a pot and gentle melt. When the marshmallow has completely melted pour it over the Cheerios, nuts and mini chocolate chips and stir together.
  3. Pour this mixture into a greased pan, lined with parchment paper for easy removal, and press it flat. After it has cooled cut the Cheerio mixture into thin logs about 1/2″ by 3″ long.
  4. Melt some dark chocolate in a double boiler and dip the logs into the chocolate so half of them are covered with chocolate. Lay them out on parchment paper and place in the refrigerator until they harden.

Witches Fingers

As with any recipe, if you do not like cheerios, you can use whatever you like or you have on hand. I like going to through my cabinets and finding bits and pieces of ingredients that is not enough to do anything with... and combine them into these logs. You could add just about anything and they would be good especially with the chocolate.
