I just HAD to share one of our favorite fall recipes with you. .especially in time for a little weekend munching! I found this recipe many years ago, I think in a taste of home publication. It was a great hit, and found its way into our home at least once each season! The recipe is listed out at the bottom.
This time I made 1 1/2 times the recipe--which worked perfectly with the bag size of the pretzels and two boxes of ritz bits. I used my big roaster pan instead of the cookie sheets.
Cookin' up the butter (I actually used real butter this time--I usually just use margarine), sugar and syrup.
Mix it all together, being a little careful not to smash the peanut butter crackers--they are a bit delicate--and stick her in the oven for a roast.
After you stir and roast; and stir and roast; take it out and toss the candies in the pot. It looks really cool if you can find fall colored m & m's--but I couldn't this year--And I hate to admit, that I HAVE, in the past, picked out the undesirable colors--but not this time--everything went!
This mix is good for picking out each piece individually and nibbling them one by one, or throwing a whole handful in your mouth at once, making sure that you have a piece of everything in there. Try it out...It's easy--and your people will love you!
