I hope everyone is having a wonderful Halloween! I have a very special Halloween surprise for you -- an amazing guest post from my extremely talented friend Kaci of The Homicidal Homemaker! Make sure to follow Kaci on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest to see more of her amazing creations!
Happy Halloween everyone! I am Kaci Hansen, more commonly known as The Homicidal Homemaker - "Where Home Economics Meets Horror!" I have been dubbed as the Martha Stewart of the Macabre, and have been said to have put the cleaver in June Cleaver. ;) Everyday is Halloween over at my blog, and I am super excited to be doing my first guest blog post ever on this special day! A huge thank you to Devi of Diddles and Dumplings for asking me to be a guest blogger for this Halloween! Not only am I a fan of Devi's blog, but she is actually the first and only other blogger I've ever met from the Central Valley! :)
Chocaholics be warned: you will have a love-hate relationship with my Count Chocula Monster Chow. It starts off with Count Chocula cereal, coated in chocolatey-goodness, and is then mixed with even more chocolate. In case you weren't convinced, it certainly will satisfy any chocolate craving you may be having, but I guarantee that you won't stop munching on it!
Just in case you missed my previous posts, I was given the opportunity by General Mills to make some recipes using their Monster Cereals, including the newly-resurrected Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy! I previously posted a super yummy recipe for my Frankenberry Monster Chow! Whether you’re familiar with Chex snack mix as ‘Puppy Chow’ or ‘Muddy Buddies’, this is the same concept…except The Homicidal Homemaker uses the oh-so-delicious chocolatey-ness of Count Chocula cereal!
Count Chocula Monster Chow
What You Need:
• 2.5 Cups of Count Chocula Cereal
• 5 oz of chocolate chips
• 6 Tablespoons of powdered sugar
• 2 Tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
STEP ONE: Remove marshmallows from cereal, and set aside. Pour cereal pieces into a large Ziplock bag.
STEP TWO: Measure out 1/2 Cup of chocolate chips, and add a few more chocolate chips on top to get approximately 5oz. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl, in 30-second increments, stirring in between, until the chocolate is melted and smooth. Pour into Ziplock bag, over cereal pieces. Seal bag, and shake to evenly coat the cereal pieces.
STEP THREE: Add powdered sugar and cocoa powder to the Ziplock bag; seal and shake to evenly coat the cereal pieces. After they are fully coated, add reserved marshmallows and extra chocolate chips to the mix.
STEP FOUR: Show your fangs (or put in your plastic ones!), pour into serving bowl, and dig your claws in and enjoy! Have a safe and happy Halloween!
