Looking for an easy and festive snack mix to share with your favorite ghouls and goblins for celebrating Halloween or as a class treat? This Graveyard Grub is perfect for that!
Easy Halloween Snacks
Do you have kids that want those amazing, spooky, 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!
Halloween night is full of parties, Halloween Candy, and a Halloween snack before you start 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 Snack Mix is just what you need to make the kiddos happy, look like the Martha Stewart mom you are, and become the teacher’s new bestie!!
Just take me to the Graveyard Grub Recipe already!

Halloween Snacks for School
Halloween is such fun at home but it is also a great time for the kids at school. My kid’s school would have a pumpkin contest, trick or treat through the halls, and had the best activities -school and fun- to keep the kids engaged. I loved to jump in and make fun treats and snacks for the kids, give the teachers a break from always being crafty and spooktacular, and let the kids enjoy some time just being kids and having fun.
Everyone thinks that 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 simple and quick Halloween snack mix can do just this!

Cute Halloween Treats
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.
The easy part of this snack mix is that you probably have most or all of the ingredients in your pantry right now! I always have pretzels, goldfish crackers, and cookies. And because I am a sprinkle addict, my baking pantry has sprinkles and candies for EVERY Holiday!!
Having these already in my kitchen makes whipping up last-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.
FAQs about Graveyard Grub Snack Mix:
- Q: What if I can’t find a specific ingredient?
A: Use what you have first and foremost! And use what your kids like. The only thing you really need to worry about is any candies or sprinkles. Simple eyeballs or pumpkins will work too!
- Q: How long will it last?
A: It will last a week in an airtight container.
- Q: What is the best way to serve the Graveyard Snack Mix?
A: 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 to the school, you want them pre-portioned and portable!
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?
