Dracula’s Trail Mix Ingredients 1/2 cup cashews 1/2 cup raisins 8-ounce package of individually wrapped soft chewy caramels 2 tbsp milk or cream Red food coloring – about 20-24 drops 1/2 cup of colorful gummy worms

Directions Preheat oven to 250F. Place popcorn, pretzels, nuts and raisins in a large glass bowl. Using the method of a double boiler, melt caramels with milk or cream. Whisk until the mixture has a silky sheen. Remove from the heat and add in the red food color. Start with 20 drops and whisk to combine. Add additional drops until the caramel is bright red. Pour caramel over popcorn mixture, stirring to coat thoroughly. Transfer to two large baking sheets, spreading them out in a single layer. Bake 20 minutes and remove to stir and bake for another 20 minutes. Let cool completely, before adding in the gummy worms. Store in an airtight container until serving. Tip: Prep bowl, spoons and baking sheets with non-stick spray to help prevent the caramel from sticking to them. Serves 9
