Enjoy this sweet and salty Halloween Snack Mix at your next Halloween party. The perfect way to use up candy plus add in the salty like pretzels and bugles.
Why this recipe works….
This Halloween Snack Mix is addicting. I say that as I’m typing this post and eating a bag full of this mix. If your looking for a fun way to incorporate some leftover Halloween candy, and don’t want the kids wired on all the chocolate they received. This is one way to balance all the sweets. Kids get hungry and we all know that candy is not going to fill their stomachs.
Why not make a mix with pretzels, popcorn, bugles, and Chex cereal plus a light drizzle of colored white chocolate, sprinkles (lots and lots of sprinkles) a few pieces of chocolate candy plus fun Halloween gummy candies. That combo of a mix is sure to be a crowd pleaser for both young and old. I like to make a batch before trick or treating so they can snack as we trick or treat OR the day after once they have received more candy then they could ever consumer.

How do you make Halloween Snack Mix?
I start by gathering all my ingredients on the counter. I like to use the largest bowl I have. You want to start with the snack like foods first like the bugles, chex, pretzels, and popcorn.
Then add in half the chocolate bars. I melt each colored white chocolate individually and drizzle with a spoon.
Then add sprinkles.
Repeat until you are done with however many colors you would like to add on the popcorn. Place the mix in the refrigerator so the chocolate will set.
Add the gummies once ready to serve. Easy as that!
I used sprinkles from Sweets and Treats. They have so many fun Halloween Sprinkle combinations.
Treat Street always has these awesome Gummy Zombie Hands and Gummy Eyeballs. My kids want to eat these before I can even put them in the snack mix.
My Chocolate Covered Pretzel Monster Bites are the perfect addition for my Halloween Snack Mix.
