Maple Fall Crunch

Maple Fall Crunch

A delicious snack that screams fall with a hint of maple and pumpkin spice in each bite, plus it is all made in a slow cooker!

Ingredients
3 cups Chex (any variety you prefer)
4 cups honey nut cheerios (or another honey cereal you like)
2 cups pretzels (any plain variety you prefer, we used sticks broken up a bit)
2 cups dried cranberries (or cherries)
1 1/2 cups honey roasted peanuts (use any nut combo you prefer)
1 1/2 almonds
1 1/2 – 2 cups graham crackers broke up into pieces about 7-8 crackers (I used plain but cinnamon would be great)
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp salt
dash of chili powder – optional

Instructions
Spray a large slow cooker with nonstick spray
To the slow cooker add in cereals, pretzels, dried cranberries, nuts & graham crackers
Stir gently trying to not break up the cereal
In a large microwave-safe cup melt butter in microwave
Gently stir in maple syrup, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, salt & chili powder (if using) using a silicone spatula or spoon trying to coat everything as much as possible
Cook on high for 2 hours, stirring every 15-20 minutes as possible
Pay close attention towards the end, stirring more often to keep everything from burning
When all the liquid is dissolved and mixture is sticky pour onto a large piece of parchment paper, spreading it out to let cool
Let cool completely and then serve…trust me it is AMAZING!

Each serving is 7 WW+ points
