vampire nibbles 1 Vampire Nibbles 2Ingredients

* 8 cups popped Kettle Corn popcorn (I make homemade Kettle Corn-store bought may be just fine)

* 3 cups Multi-grain cheerios

* 3 cup Rice CHEX

* 1 cup salted mixed fancy nuts

* 2 cups Bugles

* 2 cups Honeycomb cereal


* 1⅓ cup brown sugar

* 1⅓ cup light corn syrup

* ½ cup plus 2 TB butter

* 3 tsp. vanilla

* 1 tsp. baking soda

Add-In’s after cooking

* 1 cup candy corn

* 1 cup candy corn

* 1 cup mini marshmallows

* 1⅓ mini peanut butter cups

* 1 cup mini M&M’s


1. Line large pan with parchment paper.

2. In a bowl mix popped popcorn, cereal and peanuts.

3. In a sauce pan, combine brown sugar, syrup and butter. Bring to boil and let boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and add vanilla and baking soda. Stir until mixed well. Pour over popcorn mixture and toss with a spoon until evenly coated.

4. Spread out evenly onto parchment-lined pan. Bake at 250 for 10 minutes. Take out and stir. Bake for another 10 minutes. Let cool slightly-if too hot the chocolate candy will be melty and not look as pretty….

5. Add in candy corn, candy pumpkins, mini marshmallows, mini peanut butter cups, & mini M&M’s and mix well.
