This Halloween Hash Snack Mix is perfect for a night on the couch watching your favorite Halloween flicks, or at a Halloween party. It’s the perfect combination of sweet, salty, and crunchy that will please a crowd!
I have loved snack mixes for as long as I can remember. From back when my Grannie made homemade “trash” snack mix, to the endless packaged varieties at the grocery store, to the sweet and salty versions I’ve been making this year.
And while I have a deep-rooted love for the more savory, traditional snack mixes – like Grannie always made – there is something about the mix of sweet and salty with the crunch cereal that I just can’t resist. Especially if there is a chocolate component. And I love making themed snack mixes for the holidays. It started with Grinch snack mix last Christmas, then my Spring Snack Mix (featuring my all time favorite candy), and now this Halloween Hash Snack Mix!
It’s sweet, crunchy, and salty. And those little candy corn pumpkins are great for a Halloween snack mix! AND! How about those gummy pumpkins and bloody fingers candy from Wilton? Perfect toppers for this snack mix.
And, you could always tell people that if they reach their hands into your Halloween hash, it’ll be their bloody fingers left behind. Too much? Yeah, maybe so. Besides, snack mix is made for sharing! I know one little girl who was all about those gummy pumpkins. “Mama, I ‘ant snack mix. Can I have some snack mix, pwease!” And by snack mix, she means the gummy and candy corn pumpkins.
But hey, for those of us who aren’t three years old, there’s lots of good stuff in this Halloween hash snack mix.
Here’s what you’ll need to make Halloween Hash Snack Mix:
Chocolate Chex Cereal
Bugles Corn Snacks
Candy Corn Pumpkins
Bloody Fingers Candy
Make sure you have this on the menu for your Halloween movie night or party this month!
