Healthful Halloween Treats
Submitted by Florie Jones
"Hardly anyone thinks to make Halloween treats that are
good for you, but all the parents thank me afterward!"
4 cups Cheerios or toasted oat cereal
1 cup peanuts
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup raisins
1 cup carob chips
1/3 cup non-hydrogenated margarine
1 cup pretzels, broken into bits
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. Pour melted margarine over cereal mixture and toss lightly with fork until it's well coated. Separate into small plastic baggies and tie with orange and black ribbons for Halloween. I like to include a tag with my name, address, and phone number for the parents who are worried about homemade treats coming from a stranger, and I get lots of calls, but they are mostly to say thanks!!
You can also make them ahead of time, because they'll keep for 5-7 days in the fridge.
