Halloween Snack Mix

Do you have kids that want those amazing, SPOOKY Halloween theme snacks because it’s fun to eat pretzels with eyeball sprinkles instead of plain pretzels?

Halloween is the time of year where everyone wears costumes, eats lots of sugar, and gets to act like a kid again. It’s also a great time to start snacking!

This night is full of parties, candy, costumes, tricks, and lots of my favorite Halloween desserts.

Don’t forget the trick-or-treating! That’s a lot of walking, especially if you have a large neighborhood, so you better have the energy to make it all the way.

And you know you will be pulling wagon, carrying the kids, or even carrying the candy bag.

This Graveyard Grub Halloween Snack Mix is my favorite treat and just what you need to make the kiddos happy, look like the Martha Stewart parent you are, and become the teacher’s new bestie!!

Try it along with these Halloween Oreo Mummy Pops and these Mummy Pizza Dippers for even more kid friendly spooky treats.

Fast and Easy Halloween Treats

With everything that we have available to us, at our finger tips, and in nano-seconds, how do you still make Halloween fun?

Entertaining kids is hard, but really you just need to introduce one fun aspect to a regular activity, snack, or assignment, and you have them wrapped around your finger.

And it doesn’t even have to be over the top complicated to achieve this. A good Halloween treat and party mix can do just this!

When it comes to Halloween treats, cute, spooky, scary, and in my kid’s case, the gorier the better. What kid doesn’t like food with fake blood or a body part sticking out of it?

My Graveyard Grub has all of these things!  Pretzels, cookies, candy, and bloody body parts.

What can I use for substitutions?

Use what you have first and foremost! And use what the kids like. Then add any fun and festive sprinkles and candies you find this season. There is nothing wrong with store bought candies and snacks!

My favorite sprinkle assortment for the Halloween snack mix is the Tombstone Mix because it has the headstones which are perfect for graveyards.

Skulls and bones are a must, covered in blood or just plain bone white. Spooky eyeballs are perfect and always available, along with plain colored sprinkles and sanding sugar.

Every year you can also find ghosts, witch hats, pumpkins, bloody knives, spiders, bats, Frankenstein’s heads, bugs, and cartoon monsters. Check out the local craft stores if you don’t see any in the grocery store.

It’s okay to grab them in August as they last a long time. And you know that the decorations for any Fall holiday come out before the summer is even started. AMIRIGHT?

How long does it last?

It will last a week in an airtight container. It’s best to portion out once made to avoid repeated opening and closing of the container.

If you add any Halloween candy that is soft or chewy, I would leave those out while storing to keep the crackers and such crunchy. Add them right before serving.

What is the best way to serve it?

Cute black, white, or orange cupcake liners are perfect, but something as simple as a zip top bag with a Halloween sticker will work too.

Especially if you are transporting them. You will want them pre-portioned and portable!

Having this Graveyard Grub already in my kitchen makes whipping up 5 minute snacks a cinch, but it doesn’t stop me from buying any of the new sprinkles and candies that I see in the store. They are always coming up with new ones for me to obsess over.
