I used Gluten-Free Chex cereal and Gluten-Free Pretzels, making this a great Gluten-Free Treat. There are also raisins, candy corn and fun Halloween sprinkles. And to hold it all together, and because chocolate makes everything better, I melted white chocolate Almond Bark. But you can certainly substitute whatever you have on hand or what your family likes best, using white chocolate is the best though.

    Yum, hi from New Zealand, we don’t have the same candy as you do, but I’m going to make this tomorrow for my 3 teenage sons and husband, I know it will go down a treat. Love your ideas, and your recipes.

  4. Fun!!! Thanks for a yummy treat!

    I’ve been really excited to make this since I saw it last week on your blog, well this weekend Walmart has it in their ad, but they are saying you need 3 THREE, 24 oz packages of white chocolate baking bars?!?!? 3 packs? holy cow that is WAY more than you have in your recipe, and everything else is that same…..I’m thinking that was a mistake in the walmart add? I am so loving your site, just found it a couple of weeks ago, I so want to come to your house and be your friend…but not in a creepy way.

    • CupcakeLady says:

      Hi Marye Jane, I haven’t seen the ad yet, but it seems to be wrong. The amount I have in the recipe was the amount from the original recipe that Walmart sent me when they asked me to make the recipe. I will double check that recipe, but I’m pretty sure the one I posted is correct.
      I’m thrilled you are enjoying Hoosier Homemade!

    • CupcakeLady says:

      The original recipe calls for 8 oz of white chocolate bars, which is the amount I have in the recipe. Hope that helps.

  8. LOVE IT! Printed it! Will be making next week! THANKS!!!
