It's Christmas Eve and I'm doing my cooking for tomorrow's family dinner. For some snacks I made the muddy buddies, and had wanted to try the cinnamon apple blend since I go crazy for that taste! Even though my pantry is crammed full of food, I just didn't have the bells and whistles that the recipe was asking for in the way of yogurt covered raisins and such. But so was my desire to at least TRY this flavor that I made it with a mix of wheat and rice chex, and the coating ingredients PLUS 1/4 tsp. nutmeg. I melted the butter mixture on the stove top and mixed it into the chex well, then baked it at 250F for 15 minutes, stirred, and baked another 5 minutes. Turned out wonderfully - still great tasting with a nice sweet glaze and a hint of apple pie. Like the other reviewer said, it's dangerous.............but no regulation is needed! ;o)
