Corn Maze Munch

I came across this recipe last fall, and had fun making it several times then. And this last weekend, when I needed a little munchy snack for a gathering of college students here in our home, this was the recipe that I pulled out. Fits in perfectly with this time of year ... love how it looks, and love the taste!

Corn Maze Munch

3 tablespoons butter
3 cups Corn Chex
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups cheese popcorn 
1 pkg (about 18 oz) candy corn
1 pkg (about 14 oz) Halloween-colored M&Ms
2 pkgs (4 oz. each) corn nuts
1 cup raisins
2 - 3 cups caramel popcorn 
1 cup peanuts

In a large skillet, melt butter; add Corn Chex and toss to coat. 
Cook and stir on medium heat until cereal is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt; set aside to cool.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. 
Add Corn Chex and toss to coat. Store in an airtight container.

(Note: I have changed the original recipe a bit to what I have typed above, and in addition to my changes, I also usually just use half of the amounts, above, for the candies ... candy corn and M&Ms. Just our preference ... )
