Monster munch

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 cup Dry roast peanuts; unsalt
⅓ cup Butter or margerine
1 pounds Marshmallows
½ cup Peanut butter
3 cups Puffed rice cereal
1 cup Apricots; chopped
1 cup Raisins

In a large bowl, combine cereal, apricots, raisins and peanuts. In a microwave safe 13x9", melt butter and marshmallows on high for 2 minutes. Stir; add peanut butter cook on high 2 minutes longer. Stir until well blended, add cereal mixture to dish and toss until well coated. Working quickly with greased hand, form into balls, using about ½ C mixture, per ball. If mixture begins to harden, cook on high for 30 seconds, or until softened. If desired , mixture may be spread in unbuttered 13x9" dish and cooled and cut into bars. Makes 1 dozen balls or 2 dozen bars, This is very similar to the Rice Krispie treats, but with the apricaots and raisins it definitely gives it a fall look. I saw another idea of putting the mixture into cookie cutters, and letting it cool there so the shapes could be pumpkins, witches, etc. With a little gel piping they would be great.
