    INGREDIENTS

    • 6 slice raisin bread, cut into 1/2-inch squares
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 3 tablespoons rolled oats
    • 1 cup California raisins
    • 1/2 cup yogurt-covered California raisins
    • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

    PROCEDURE

    Heat oven to 300°F. Spray jelly roll pan (cookie pan with sides) with nonstick cooking spray. Place bread cubes in pan in a single layer. In small saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and honey. Cook over low heat until bubbly. Pour mixture over bread cubes; stir to coat. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the rolled oats; mix. Sprinkle with remaining oats; mix.

    Bake at 300°F for 20 minutes or until light golden brown, stirring once. Turn off oven. Leave croutons in oven about 40 minutes or until dry and crispy, stirring twice. Remove from oven; cool completely. (Croutons will become more crisp as they cool.) In medium bowl, combine croutons with remaining ingredients; mix well.
