Fall is hands down my favorite time of the year, and my kids have been getting into the groove of it as well. They know Halloween is right around the corner, they can’t wait to go to the apple orchard, and I have already been asked about pumpkin carving at least twice. They love the themes of the season. To spread a little Halloween cheer, Kenley helped me make some Monster Mix to add to these fun 7.5 oz Mini Monster Cans of A&W® Root Beer for the kids teachers.
What you will need for Monster Mix:
3 cups corn cereal
3 cups rice cereal
3 cups wheat cereal
1-2 cups mixed nuts (I used cashews)
1 cup cheese crackers
1 cup pretzels
1 stick butter
2 TBSP Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp seasoned salt
1 tsp Cajun seasoning
½ tsp onion powder
½ tsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Place the butter in a roasting pan and let melt in the oven. While the butter melts, mix cereal, nuts, crackers, and pretzels together in a large bowl. When the butter melts, add the Worcestershire sauce and seasonings to the butter, and mix until combined. Pour in the cereal mixture and toss to coat. Place in the oven for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes. When it is done in the oven, pour out on paper towels to cool. Store in airtight container.
For their teachers, I gathered some tissue paper, twine, a cute little note written on a piece of paper to add to the Monster Mix and Mini Monster Cans!
Place the Monster Mix in a small snack sized plastic baggie along with a Mini Monster Can in the center of a piece of tissue paper.
Grab the corners of the tissue paper and pull up around the snack and drink, then tie the top with the twine. I attached the note with a stapler so it wouldn’t come off when the kids took them to school.
