Halloween Snack Mix Recipe

There is always a surplus of candy around the house around Halloween, and I like using it to make fun Halloween treats. These can be served at a Halloween party, while making Halloween crafts with your kids, or doled out as a special snack. This simple Halloween Snack Mix makes for an easy recipe that's sure to please.


  • 2 cups crushed salty pretzels
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup chocolate candies (like M&Ms)
  • 1/4 cup chopped choclate wafers (like Kit Kat Bars)


Step 1: Preheat the oven to 275F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Step 2: In a small bowl, mix the melted butter, pretzels, and brown sugar.

Step 3: Spread the mixture on the lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes, or until dark brown and toasted. Allow to cool.
