CARAMEL POPCORN: Popcorn is a classic childhood halloween treat. I like to add caramel corn into the snack mix but feel free to use your favorite kind like butter popcorn, or kettle corn.

CANDY CORN: Like them or hate them, candy corn is a halloween staple. Snacking on this sweet treat with salty pretzels and chex cereal is delicious! Head to the halloween candy aisle and pick up classic candy corn and candy corn pumpkins. Try the caramel flavor to mix things up!

PRETZELS: Salty, crunchy, savory. Pretzels pack a big taste in this fall inspired dessert snack mix.

CHEX: Honey, corn, rice, wheat, cinnamon sugar, ect. Any of these varieties work well with this halloween chex mix recipe.

CHOCOLATE CANDY: Candy like chocolate covered caramel candy Rolos and a variety of M&Ms infuse texture and added flavor with each bite.

Crunchy Snack Mix Varieties

Can I make this for a party the day before? Yes. Simply store it in an air tight container or ziplock bag.

Want to make this a little bit healthier? Skip a few of the candies and substitute them with raisins, yogurt covered cranberries, pecans, roasted nuts, cashews, pistachios, pumpkin seeds, or almonds.

What other snacks can I add to the mix? Bugles, apple chips, eyeball candy, white chocolate popcorn, gourmet flavored popcorn, caramel candy pieces, baking chips such as white or chocolate chips, candy covered pretzels, teddy grahams, cheese crackers.

How can I serve this for a Halloween party? Serve the snack mix in lunch size brown paper bags or small ziplock bags. Another idea is to present a big treat with small clear plastic cups at the food table.

TIP: Buy halloween candy at the start of the season, wait until to goes on sale, or use whatever candy is leftover from trick or treating.

Enjoy these other classic fall desserts and snacks. I like to make this double layer Caramel Apple Crisp and serve it with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream. If your hosting a party, don’t forget to make a fun autumn apple dessert like these Caramel Apple Jello Shots. Skip the booze if serving around children and just use apple cider. Serve up these Starbucks inspired Pumpkin Spice Latte Cupcakes, too.

If it’s your first year carving pumpkins with friends or the kids, save the pumpkin seeds and roast them in the oven. Then, toss the pumpkin seeds in delicious seasoning to add flavor to your favorite snack. Try my Ranch Pumpkin Seeds, or try these other 10 Pumpkin Seed recipes. Finally, make Caramel Apples at home this year. Top the apples with delicious fillings like oreos, caramel sauce, chocolate, pretzels, nuts, marshmallows and any other snacks toppings.
