Assemble this Halloween Snack Bowl and friends can help themselves to a tasty treat at your party, or scoop the mixture into cellophane bags and tie them up with a festive ribbon. A homemade treat like this would be much more appreciated by your local trick or treaters!
Measure out the cereal and place it into a large bowl. Make sure the bowl is big enough to stir and toss when the time comes.
Next, add the chocolate, butter, and vanilla extract to a microwave-safe bowl. In increments of 30 seconds, and with the microwave on half power, melt the ingredients together. Be sure to stir well with a rubber spatula between every increment.
When the mixture is all melted, pour it over the cereal you have previously measured out into that large bowl. Using your spatula, stir the chocolate into the cereal until every piece of cereal is coated.
Next, add the sprinkles and stir once again to distribute.
Finally, add the confectioner’s sugar and toss to cover all of the cereal.
Spread this mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Leave it alone until the chocolate has firmed up and dried – about 2 hours.
Transfer the cereal to a large bag and add in all of the candy, chocolates, and pretzels. Gently shake to mix everything together.
Finally, pour the mixture into a serving bowl and serve.
