Narnia Party

A few years ago, when the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe came out on DVD, our family had a "Narnia Party" as we watched the movie, with lots of wintry white food, including Turkish Delights, like they ate in the film. (Although we subbed Aplets and Cotlets for those).

We meant to have a Narnia party every year, but this last Friday was only the second one we've had. It was fun, too! We watched the movie while eating stove-popped popcorn with butter, white cheddar Cheezits, Sargento's new white cheddar snowflakes, white mini marshamllows, more Aplets and Cotlets, "snowy" Chex Muddy Buddies, and Garlic White Cheese Bread. I used this recipe, and used white flour for the crust.

The party was a huge success, and the kids loved it! They got to eat in front of the TV, which is a treat for them. The Muddy Buddies were the most popular item, I think! (Sometimes, you just gotta have a carb-fest). Chex Muddy Buddies

9 cups Corn Chex®, Rice Chex®, Wheat Chex® cereal (or combination)
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup peanut butter (I used natural pb)
1/4 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1. Into large bowl, measure cereal; set aside.
2. In 1-quart microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips, peanut butter and butter uncovered on High 1 minute; stir. Microwave about 30 seconds longer or until mixture can be stirred smooth. Stir in vanilla. Pour mixture over cereal, stirring until evenly coated. Pour into 2-gallon resealable food-storage plastic bag. (I skipped the bag and did everything in a huge bowl).
3. Add powdered sugar. Seal bag; shake until well coated. (Or just stir gently in large bowl). Spread on waxed paper to cool. (I skipped the wax paper, also). Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
