Story Time with ChambersMade

little Mrs Chambers...
wearing her apron...
stirring her Chex Mix...
when along came a spider...
who dropped.down.in.the.middle of the boiling hot batch!!!
and FRIED little spider too death...

only a little bit of Chex Mix lost...
only a little bit of a mess when
     little Mrs. Chambers scooped out the spider, Chex Mix and all...
and bludgeoned it to an even more FINAL death
     (it was dead when it hit the hot mix)
smashing Chex Mix into 1000 of tiny pieces......
but I had to be sure
and little Mrs. Chambers swallowed her scream so the girl child would have NO idea what happened and therefore still eat the non tainted Chex Mix!

and that was today's ChambersMade Nursery Rhyme Store Time

and the Chex Mix that is super yummy and spider free

Dark Chocolate Cherry Honey Nut Crunch
4 cups Honey Nut Chex
4 cups Rice/Wheat/Corn...a mixture of all three or just one type
3 cups Honey Graham Oh's Cereal*
2 cups peanuts (I prefer salted but it's up to you)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 cups dried cherries
1-2 cups Dark Chocolate Chips

In large microwavable bowl, mix cereal and peanuts.

In 2-cup microwavable measuring cup, microwave brown sugar, butter, honey and salt uncovered on High about 1 1/2 minutes, stirring after 1 minute, until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from microwave and stir in vanilla. Pour over cereal mixture; stir until evenly coated.

Microwave uncovered on High 4 minutes, stirring every minute. Stir in cherries. Microwave an additional 3 minutes, stirring every minute. Spread on waxed paper or foil to cool. Once cool stir in dark chocolate chips.  Store in airtight container.
This is such a yummy Chex Mix...it has the flavor of carmel corm without the pieces of chewy popcorn getting stuck in your teeth!...and Chocolate...I was very pleasantly surprised by the flavor...

*and for those that don't know what Honey Graham Oh's are

I bet I could modify this for my gluten free tummy - Rice Chex are already gluten free... Corn Chex may be too, but since my tummy can't do corn either... any-who gonna see what I can do :)
