This sweet and salty Halloween Snack Mix is a great Fall snack to have on hand and it's also great for Fall- or Halloween-themed parties!
Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. I can remember eagerly reading Halloween-themed books and planning out my costume as October 31st approached. I later learned that some people consider it to be an "evil" holiday, but can't anything be evil if used improperly? For me it has always had a magical spin, with the costumes, candy, spooky stories and pumpkin carving. I'm noticing that Halloween holds magic for my boys, too, and I love that.
Last night we opened the cupboard to find that we were out of popcorn. Gasp. I immediately worked toward a solution so we wouldn't find ourselves in the same sad dilemma tonight. On paper, in the light of the moon here at our cozy campsite, this delicious snack mix was born.
I picked up ingredients and made it first thing this morning, which may have been a bit of a mistake because I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO STOP EATING IT. This will tell you two things: 1. It is totally addicting, and 2. I will not be eating lunch or dinner. In addition to being a triple meal replacement, it would also be great for a Halloween-themed party!
Enjoy this season and everything fun and delicious that comes with it!
