This is an adopted recipe that I haven't yet tried. When I get a chance, I will make any amendments that are necessary.

Glad to see this on here, I have been making this for years. Its from the nestle website although they no longer carry the Halloween shapes. Turns out great every time just dont put the heat too high during the 5 minute no stir stage-or it will burn. I use whatever nuts I have on hand and adapt it to any season with add-ins. Sno-caps taste really good in here. Thanks for sharing and keeping it here.
