The Best Halloween Snack Mix

The Best Halloween Snack Mix recipe for that sweet and salty crunch!

The Best Halloween Snack Mix

Can’t. Stop. Eating. This. Halloween. Snack. Mix. Seriously, the sweet + salty combo is so addictively good! I took it a step further with this snack mix and instead of just tossing all the ingredients together, which you can totally do and would still be delicious, I made a special Pumpkin Spice Sauce. Yeah, you heard me right! All those salty bites get a little Pumpkin Spice treatment and it really takes this snack mix to the next level!

When is a good time to eat this Pumpkin Spice Halloween Snack Mix you might ask? Well, when watching Harry Potter movie marathons comes to mind. When passing out candy on Halloween. When you’re feeling the spooky spirit and want an afternoon treat.

It also makes a great hostess gift I might add! Make up a big batch of this and keep half for yourself and divide the rest into glass mason jars, tie on cute ribbons and boom! Hostess gifts done.

The thing I love about snack mixes like this one is that they are easily adaptable. Don’t like candy corn? Leave it out. Want to make it gluten-free? Use gluten-free pretzels. Need it done it quick? You can skip the Pumpkin Spice Sauce… but don’t skip it if you have the time!

I also just love having seasonal snacks around now that we are spending so much time at home. I’ve always been one to go for salty snacks but lately, ok ever since bébé, I’m all about those sweet nibbles! In the afternoons, I am either reaching for this snack mix or a comforting chai latte. Both of these just scream fall to me and y’all know I am all about that fall season!

Fall can be a tricky season in Austin since we usually have an extended summer but we make the most it with all the yummy fall flavors! I want to know, what are your favorite fall flavors? Or better yet, what is the thing that makes you feel like fall is here? Tell me in the comments!

      We love candy corn and peanuts too! So simple but this recipe does give the snack mix a little some extra!

    This snack mix is great. I modified it for Christmas by using Red and green M&M’s and Hershey’s Kissies Candy Cane Mint. Everyone I gave it to loved it. Be sure to use Bugles. I was able to find large bags at Target

    Excited to try this! QQ: what are the “cooking” instructions? Do you warm us the salty bits in the oven? Heat up the pumpkin spice part?
