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.

WHAT IS SNACK MIX?

Having the perfect finger foods for your kids to munch on, on the way to activities, to send along for a Halloween party or just in the evening to watch a movie! This snack mix doesn’t require any special dishes to prepare it and the mix of ingredients can change if you prefer a different mix. A lot of crunch, some salty, some sweet but not too much of either. Stirring together the ingredients are the only instructions, so enjoy putting together your own colorful mix!

HOW DO YOU PREPARE A HALLOWEEN SNACK MIX?

Make the perfect fall treat in minutes, just a few ingredients and it's ready to go!

This unique mix of ingredients is particularly good in the fall when candy corn goes on sale. You can take these very sweet treats and mix them up with a good salty snack to offset the sugar content. Bugles are another great crunchy snack alongside some caramel corn. If you have a favorite chocolate candy other than m&m’s, then toss those in! The best part is you can use whatever mix of Halloween candy you have around the house!

STORING YOUR SNACK MIX

Once you mix this up, you can put it in a Tupperware or any air tight container and keep it around for a couple weeks as you enjoy it.

OPTIONAL ADD-INS FOR YOUR SNACK MIX

  • Chex Cereal

  • Raisinets or plain raisins

  • Variety of Nuts (salted or unsalted)

  • Regular popcorn

  • White chocolate chips

  • Craisins

GREAT GIFTS FOR FRIENDS

This is a great little gift! It's a perfect gift idea for someone you're going to spend the day with or to send a long as a little gesture that you're thinking of them. Pick up a pint sized mason jar and fill it with all the favorite ingredients you picked for your snack mix! Place a gift tag on it and let them know you've been thinking of them.

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!
