Halloween Snack Mix

There is so much to love about Halloween. I look forward to the weather around that time of year; the autumn leaves that begin to fall from the trees and the fun decorations that people start hanging up on their homes to get into the spirit of the spooky holiday. While these are all great things to look forward to, there is one thing in particular that I enjoy most about Halloween, and that is all the fun and tasty treats that I can make.

I will admit that I am always looking for an easy recipe that does not take too long to prepare. I do not want to spend hours in the kitchen, but I want to create something that will taste good and impress my kids and others. I want to follow a recipe that people will enjoy and want me to make again and again. And that is precisely what happens when preparing this pretzel snack mix for Halloween.

Why You Should Start Making the Halloween Snack Mix

This Halloween Pretzel Snack Mix is my absolute favorite Halloween-inspired recipe for a few good reasons. It includes all my favorite sweets for starters and is a combination of both a sweet and salty snack.

Aside from its great taste, it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. In just 10 minutes, you can make the snack mix and serve it to the kids. If you follow the recipe to a T, you will have enough of the snack mix for at least eight people, but you can always double the recipe if need be.

You can do a lot with this flavorful Halloween snack mix. I like to prepare it with the kids in the kitchen and then eat it together while watching a kid-friendly Halloween movie.

While it is something my kid and I can prepare together, it is also something we can enjoy together. We look forward to Halloween because I get all the ingredients needed for this recipe and then my kid to make it with me in minutes.

Although we enjoy eating it together at home as a snack between meals, I can also prepare larger batches of it and send it to school with the children for their Halloween parties. When family and friends have Halloween events, I always bring some of the Halloween snack mix with me, and it is a huge hit every time.

Helpful Tips to Know When You Prepare the Halloween Snack Mix

If you are going to prepare this Halloween snack mix, there are some helpful tips to know ahead of time. For example, the recipe does call for peanut M&Ms in addition to the regular M&Ms.

However, if you have a child with a peanut allergy or if you plan to make this snack mix for an event, you can skip out on using the peanut M&Ms just to be on the safe side. While the peanuts do give the snack mix an extra crunch, you can always use crispy M&Ms in place of the peanut ones for that crunch.

  • After I make the Halloween snack mix, we usually devour it in no time because it is that good.
  • If I am making the mix for a party, I will store it in the fridge in a sealed container with a lid.
  • The reason that I like to store the mix in the fridge is that it keeps the snack mix cool and prevents the chocolate from melting everywhere.
  • While there is nothing wrong with having some melted chocolate, I prefer to keep everything looking perfect when I make this Halloween recipe.
