You can customize the ingredients in the snack mix to your family’s preferences – like leave out the peanuts if allergies could be a factor or use candy corn if you don’t have candy pumpkins.

This snack mix is not just for fall or Halloween. It can be made throughout the year, really. Just switch out the candy pumpkins or candy corn for another seasonal favorite or omit them all together if you like.

Here’s my Halloween Snack Mix recipe. I hope you love it!

    5 stars
    There are very few Halloween treats in Australia but things are changing. It’s like the US in the 50s when mothers would make candy apples and popcorn balls for treats. 🙂

    Your snack mix would make any kid happy and kids of all ages, like me!

      It sounds wonderful there for Halloween, Maureen! I grew up with my family making popcorn balls, caramel corn and candy apples for Halloween, too! We also only visited houses for family and friends that we knew, so no issues with receiving those sorts of treats because you knew they were safe. Hope you had a great one! xo
