A slightly spooky but certainly sweet treat perfect for Halloween, my Mummy Munch Snack Mix is a great way for ghouls of all ages to celebrate.
Easy Halloween Snack Mixes
It’s time to break out the costumes and scary decorations because Halloween is upon us! My top two favorite holidays of the year are Easter and Halloween. I loved getting Easter baskets as a kid as my mom always went all out with the treats in the basket.
Halloween is my other 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 called Mummy Munch.
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!
Just take me to the Mummy Munch Recipe!

Halloween Snacks for School
With all the different “scary” or “horror” characters out there, there is no shortage of monsters to name my snack mix after. I was thinking of going with a clown theme because of the remake of the IT movie this summer. While Pennywise the Clown will be a popular costume this Halloween, it is not a scary name in itself.
There is another Mummy Munch on the interweb, but it is made completely different than my recipe so I decided to call it Mummy Munch too. What other snack name starts with an “M” that I could use?

Spooky Halloween Treats
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.
So we have slivered almonds, popcorn, and marshmallows but we need to add chocolate too because it’s not a scary movie snack if it doesn’t have chocolate. White chocolate? I said no to the white chocolate as I think it is a little too sweet, and we need to balance out all these other sweet goodies so dark chocolate it is.
Now, how about a few body parts? A mummy supposed to be spooky and once you unwrap a mummy it falls apart so why not? I included some candy eyeballs (large ones so you can see them) and a sprinkle of skull and crossbones candy I picked up at the craft store. It’s so amazing all the themed candies you can find for the individual holidays.
I am a sucker for toasted coconut chips so I wanted to incorporate those too. I think they look like discolored mummy bandages so I added the whole bag! One thing we still don’t have are actual mummies, so let’s make some!

I had some pretzel nuggets left over from my French Onion Pretzel recipe so I grabbed a few handfuls. A drizzle of melted white candy or white chocolate over the pretzel nuggets gave them a “mummy” appearance. Silly candy eyeballs complete the look and even make them a little silly.
Now my Mummy Munch Snack Mix is complete! Salty, sweet, crispy, crunchy, chocolatey, full of mummy parts, and perfect for your Halloween party, your kid’s classroom celebration, or even your officemates at the company costume party. Whatever the occasion, make some fast before the mummies come and wrap you up!
