I couldn't find apples with all of the other dried fruit at my grocery. I headed over to the baby aisle and picked up some of the dried apple bits there. SOOO good and I didn't have the extra hassle of cutting them up. :D This went to my kindergartener's class for the daily snack and they loved it! Thanks!
My family really enjoyed this snack. I will be making it for my girls lunchboxes often. Thanks!
I picked this recipe for a snack for my son's lunch. I decided that since it was a microwave recipe, he could make and I would supervise him. He's 9 and I'm starting to teach him how to cook. I don't like my son to have to much sugar, so I bought some wheat squares at the bulk barn. I did have to add more margarine to coat the cereal as this is more absorpant (sp??) that the quaker squares cereal. It made up very well after that and is now cooling to be packed up for his lunches. It was super simple to make and with the modifications it's something that I will make again. Again, I will use the sugarless cereal.
I doubled the sugar mixture as suggested and this turned out just terrific. My husband and son loved it and I sent a big bag of it to my husband's office where it was quite a hit as well.
What a yummy snack! It's simple to make, and the flavors all mix together very well. I used unsalted margarine in place of the vegetable oil spread, and it turned out great. I might try doubling the spread/brown sugar/cinnamon mixture, because it didn't seem to be quite enough to cover all the cereal. But it was still great as-is, and I'll be making this one again!
