Easy Halloween Snack Mix

I’ll always remember the older lady who lived down the street from my childhood home. We loved to visit her house on Halloween because she had the best homemade treats, and you could pick whatever you wanted. She in turn asked for a joke or a song, something like that. As much as we loved candy, we sure did love her treats.

Monster Munch is quick and easy to make and it doesn’t require any baking. You can even get the kids involved. You can make this with your favorite snacks. I’ve made some suggestions below, but the possibilities are really endless. You’ll love the sweet and salty combo, and the white chocolate just brings it all together.

This snack mix can be served in a big bowl or packaged up with a ribbon and a cute tag and gifted to neighbors, friends and teachers- especially if you are “booing” them!

The Best Way To Melt White Chocolate

Melting chocolate in the microwave can be tricky. If the chocolate gets too hot it can burn and in that case you need to start over. To prevent this, melt the chocolate at 50% power for 30 seconds at a time, and stir each time. This helps slowly melt the chocolate and distribute the heat to prevent hot spots.

If you are melting colored candy melts, you can follow this same method.

Ways to Serve

  • In a big bowl! This is the perfect party food.
  • This makes a great gift! Packaged in festive gift bags or tins.
  • As a snack! Pack some up in the lunch box, your kids will be pumped.
  • Package together with these spooky halloween hot cocoa bombs.

How to Store Snack MiX

This can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 5-7 days. Be sure that the chocolate has set completely before packaging.
