Directions for Preparing the Granola

  1. Butter a large baking dish. In the buttered dish, place the oatmeal, honey, oil, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Mix well and add water if needed to make the mixture moist.
  2. Press down the mixture in the pan.
  3. Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven.
  4. Stir every 10-15 minutes, as to make the granola evenly brown. Keep baking until the mixture is a golden brown and slightly crunchy. Remove from the oven to cool.
  5. In a separate bowl, place the raisins, almonds, apricots, dates and candy corn. Mix well.
  6. Add the candy mixture with the granola mixture and then store in an airtight container. When the granola is to be served at the party, place in a large bowl with extra candy corn decorated around the outer edges of the bowl for decor.
Candy corn is used in many party recipes and comes in many shapes and sizes. It is not only for Halloween parties, but for the entire holiday season.
