Fall into the season with this Spooky Halloween Snack Mix! When preparing a snack and dessert table, I like to keep things festive and simple. There are several Halloween Chex Party Mix recipes that call for drizzling the ingredients with a mixture of butter and sugar, or Karo Syrup and peanut butter, and then baking the snack mix on a cookie sheet. But when you have small kiddos rushing around the house happily snacking, sticky mixtures like that mean a lot of sticky hands planted on floors, walls, furniture and other surfaces during movie nights or Halloween parties. So I’ve found that this Spooky Halloween Party Mix is a much cleaner snack option. And let me tell you, that’s really good news when cleaning up after a party!
My favorite Spooky Halloween Snack Mix includes these easy-to-find ingredients: A box of Corn Chex Cereal, a bag of pretzels, a package of Bugels, candy corn, yummy Reese’s pieces, and spooky candy eyes. Together the colors and flavors of this Spooky Halloween Snack Mix are a perfect match for the beautiful fall season.
To make this colorful and Spooky Halloween Snack Mix, measure out 2 cups of Chex Cereal, 2 cups of pretzels (any size and shape of pretzels will do just fine), 2 cups Bugels, 3/4 cup candy corn, and 3/4 cup Reese’s pieces. Add them to a large, wide serving bowl. You can either mix all of the ingredients together with a spoon or spatula, or keep everything separated out in the bowl just like I’ve done here. On top of the Spooky Halloween Snack Mix, add a few pairs of both large and small candy eyeballs. The ones I use are made by Wilton, but you can also add in some large and spooky gummy eyeballs too.
Include a serving spoon and small Halloween drink cups next to the Spooky Halloween Snack Mix. Both kids and adults can scoop out the snack mix into the cups and start munching! From experience, I’ve found that when serving snack mixes of any sort, guests will pick out and eat the pieces they like best and leave the rest to be thrown away. By leaving the items separated everyone serves exactly what they like and plan on eating. So it saves a lot of waste. Just check the snack table from time to time and replenish the bowl with individual items that need refilling. What are your favorite ingredients in this Spooky Halloween Snack mix?
When you add a large bowl of Spooky Halloween Snack Mix to a decorated snack and dessert table, it will take center stage. You really won’t need that much more to complete your party table. Keep things simple yet fun. Include Halloween cupcakes, Halloween Monster Mash Brownies, two small bowls of traditional Halloween candies like M&Ms and Reese’s Miniature Cups, and a festive drink like apple cider or orange punch.
