I found this recently on an insert in a magazine. I have to admit I haven't made this yet however; the ingredients sound terrific together. This would be terrific as a snack for lunches, or for a fall party thanks to all the warm spices.
In a saucepan on medium heat add brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg uncovered, stiring occasionaly, until smooth and bubbly, take saucepan off of the burner and turn off the stove.
Pour liquid mixture over cereal mixture, stir until evenly coated.
Spread the cereal mixure onto waxed paper or foil to cool. Sprinkle the dried apples evenly over the cereal mixture.
In a small microwavable bowl, microwave white vanilla baking chips and shortening uncovered on high about 1 minute or until chips can be stirred smooth. Drizzle over cereal mixture; let stand until set. Break into bite-size pieces.
