Halloween Hash


It's that big month of the year when Beaulah comes
out of hibernation and cooks up lots of 
Halloween
fun and decor!


If you haven't met Beaulah before, she hosts all kinds of 
Halloween fun at Purple Chocolat Home and is
the pretty sister of Zoulah who lives at 
Red Couch Recipes.  (Well, she thinks she is the pretty one,
but Joni and I think they look pretty identical and yes there
really are two of them!)
She whipped up one of her
 favorite snacks,  this yummy, gooey, orangey
Chex Mix treat that is filled with all of the
goodies she loves as you can tell by her
front teeth!


Look at all of the goodies, candy corn, Peanut M&Ms, peanuts, almonds
dried cherries and raisins are all ready to be tossed in the cooled
Chex Mix.  


The orange color makes it very appetizing and is perfect
for Halloween.


This fun footed bowl was something Beaulah found this year
at TJ Maxx. She just loves great Halloween serving dishes.


I think it was the trio of curly toed shoes that caught her eye
and with a wink of that eye the bowl flew right into our
cart.

Halloween Hash Recipe

11 oz box of Chex Rice Cereal
3/4 C. butter
1 C. sugar
1 C. light corn syrup
orange gel food coloring
1 C. peanuts
1 C. Peanut M&Ms
1 C. candy corn
1/2 C. almonds
1/2 C. dried cherries
1/2 C. raisins (optional)


Place the Chex cereal in a large bowl sprayed with Pam.

In a medium sized saucepan melt the butter and add the
sugar and corn syrup.  Heat until it starts to bubble around
the edges.  Add orange gel food coloring until it is a bright
orange.  

Bring to a boil and let boil for 2 minutes.  Pour over the
cereal and stir to coat.  Place on a baking sheet that is sprayed
with Pam and let cool about 10 minutes.  You don't want it so warm
that it will melt the M&Ms when you toss them in.  Add all of the 
candy and nuts and goodies and toss to coat.  Let cool and serve


Little and big spooks alike love this treat.  
BEWARE
it is hard to stop eating.

Beaulah is taking this treat to a few parties

I can just imagine what Beulah will be up to this Hallowe'en! As for the Hallowe'en Hash - well, I wouldn't dare to make it without a crowd to eat it, as it looks too tempting to have hanging around!
