Halloween Party Mix

Halloween.Party.Mix.4

I need to warn you, this makes a huge batch and you’ll definitely need it as it’s so yummy that you can eat it in one sitting.  I think this would be great to snack on when you’re passing out candy on Halloween night; while listening to your Halloween music playlist of course.  A little Monster Mash anyone?

I have the distinct honor of being a pediatric therapist in my real (non food blogging) life.  I made a batch of this tonight for the kids I see as a special Halloween treat.  I wrapped single serving portions in little cellophane bags tied with Halloween ribbon.  I sure hope they love it!

Recipe type: Dessert, Party Food
Serves: 4-6
Ingredients
  • 16 ounces of white chocolate or vanilla flavored candy coating (plus up to 8 ounces additional if you want the mix heavily coated)
  • 2 cups tiny twist pretzels
  • 1¼ cups Cheerios
  • 1¼ cups Corn Chex
  • 1¼ cups cinnamon flavored wheat chex
  • 1 10 oz bag of candy corn
  • orange and black sprinkles (I used a harvest blend) - use desired amount for color
Instructions
  1. Mix the pretzels, cereals and candy corn in a big bowl or on a large baking sheet (that's what I use as I don't have a big enough bowl).
  2. Melt the chocolate in the microwave starting with 1 minute then stirring. Repeat heating for 15-20 seconds, stirring after each heating. It is easy to overheat the chocolate which changes its texture. This method works very well.
  3. Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the mixture and stir gently to coat the mixture as evenly as possible.
  4. Transfer to a large baking sheet and add the sprinkles over the top.
  5. Let the mixture cool for 2-3 hours.
  6. Break the mix into pieces with a spatula.
  7. Store in plastic bags or an airtight container.
