MONSTER POPCORN

It’s time to break out the costumes and scary decorations because Halloween is upon us!

Halloween is my favorite because I am a scary movie junkie. The scarier the better! What makes scary movies bearable? Snacks! 

That is why I am bringing you a spooky snack to eat while watching movies or handing out candy to trick-or-treaters.

Scary movies require salty, crispy, sweet, bite-sized treats to keep your hands busy and muffle the sounds of your screams in the theater.

My Mummy Munch snack mix will do just that!

HALLOWEEN POPCORN

With all the different “scary” or “horror” characters out there, there is no shortage of monsters to name my snack mix after.

When talking about mummies we have to start with the color white. What snacks are white that will taste great in a snack bag? Popcorn, marshmallows, almonds. 

Ok, the almonds are slightly “yellowish” in color but aren’t mummy bandages a little discolored after being buried for thousands of years? The slivered almonds are going in.

Don’t they look a little like bones? I think so!

MUMMY MUNCH INGREDIENTS

  • popcorn – salty snack
  • candy eyeballs – spooky fun candy
  • marshmallows – sweet to balance the salty
  • almond slivers – nutty and look like bones
  • dark chocolate chips – balance out the sweet & salty
  • toasted coconut strips – crunchy and look like mummy bandages
  • white chocolate covered pretzels – edible mummy pretzels
