This sweet and salty Halloween Snack Mix is a great Fall snack to have on hand. It is perfect for a handful on the run or a great snack for kiddos after school! It's also great for Fall- or Halloween-themed parties! Mix and match the snacks you have on hand to build your snack mix.
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 a Snack Mix?
Having the perfect finger foods to munch on after school, on the way to activities or just in the evening to watch a moviel 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. Once you mix this up, you can put it in a Tupperware and keep it around for a couple weeks as you enjoy it.
How do you prepare a Halloween Snack Mix?
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!
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!
