This Halloween Snack Mix has only 3 ingredients and tastes like a candy bar! It’s my favorite snack mix for Halloween!
Sometimes I miss not being a food blogger. Before I started blogging I didn’t love lemon desserts, saving me hundreds of thousands of calories each time I went to a party where lemon cake was served.
Before I started blogging I thought a basic chocolate chip cookie was the bomb dot com, and I never would have thought to add more calories to brownies by adding crushed cookies, candy, and pretzels.
But most of all, what I miss about not blogging is that I used to hate candy corn. I never liked it; I thought it was “too sweet”. I never bought it, never indulged in it. And then somewhere along the way I read a blog post about how when you eat candy corn with peanuts it tastes like a chewy peanut candy bar. From that moment until infinity, I have been lost in the “lover of candy corn” camp.
Now, not only am I sharing this infinite wisdom with you (because I want everyone to be as in love with it as me, obvi) but I’m also adding something else to the mix, something that makes the peanuts-and-candy-corn combo even better: Rice Krispies Treats.
If you add some chopped up Rice Krispies Treats to the Halloween Snack Mix that is my downfall, you get something EVEN BETTER. The chewy sweet texture of the treats just makes it taste like a crunchy chewy version of that same candy bar.
This recipe is so easy – only 3 ingredients – and involves no cooking or baking. Basically you need a bowl and you’re done. The hardest thing you have to do is unwrap Rice Krispies Treats! Another thing I love about this snack mix is that you can make as much as you need (maybe for your Halloween party?) or as little as you want (because you KNOW you’re going to want to eat this while you binge all your TV shows).
Chop, mix, eat – easy as store bought Rice Krispies Treats!
I can’t wait to divide this up into mini cauldrons for my daughter and her friends. They’re going to love it!
