Melt 1/2 of your package of vanilla almond bark (about 8 oz) in the microwave in a very large bowl. Follow the package instructions for melting. Stir well. Add 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice and mix well. Add your entire box of cereal and toss to coat each piece. Place 1/2 cup powdered sugar in a large zippered bag. Add 1/2 of your cereal mixture. Zip and shake to coat. Lay out on a cookie sheet. Repeat with other 1/2 cup powdered sugar and 1/2 of cereal mixture. Allow the coated cereal to set up. Add cranberries, walnuts, and candy corn mix and toss to combine. Add to a bowl for eating.
Want to get a little more festive with your mix? Add it to paper cones to serve. Cut 12" by 12" sheets of scrap book paper into fourths. Roll into a cone and tape. Then add your trail mix.
This makes the mix easy to carry around a party and munch on. Plus it keeps the little hands out of the large bowl of trail mix!
All of the pieces get a dusting of powdered sugar once they are mixed with the cereal. I did not know just how good walnuts and cranberries are once you put a little powdered sugar on them. Y'all they are amazing.
I hope you enjoy this one as much as we did! I actually just made it for my family and took the remainder to work with me. That way we got to enjoy it but not eat the entire batch! Cause I am telling y'all it makes a BUNCH!
