Pumpkin Snack Mix

DELICIOUS Pumpkin Snack Mix recipe on { lilluna.com } An easy and quick snack. Recipe has popcorn, peanuts, cheerios, chex, candy corn, and pumpkins mixed together with brown sugar, vanilla, corn syrup, butter, and baking soda!!

We love Snack Mixes in our home. Every Friday we have Movie Night and we are always looking for treats to make and try out for the night. We often have popcorn, but love to jazz it up a bit with candy or chocolate (like this White Chocolate M&M Popcorn or this Caramel Marshmallow Popcorn).  We recently decided to try a Halloween Pumpkin Snack Mix and were extremely happy with how delicious it turned out. In fact, the hubby ended up eating almost all of it because he said it was so good. The kids were able to sneak a few handfuls from dad and loved it as well. I only managed to get a few bites but thought it was a great mix to enjoy this time of year. I admit though that I’m a bit of a candy corn and Pumpkin mallow nut so that was definitely my favorite part. 😉 With the combination of all the cereals, candy and nuts you’ll definitely want to try this recipe. :)

Here is the recipe for this delicious Pumpkin Snack Mix:

    Kristyn – I love this and will be making it this weekend. I have a question for you on some advice — you know that I love to make all your treats for our missionaries, and they love everything I make. If I make this, how do you think I should wrap it for them?? Big baggies?? I’m just not sure but I want to give it to them! Any ideas?? I usually buy cheap dishes at Target for cookies and such, but always lost on snack mixes. Thanks for all you do to help me keep a generous heart and pass things on!!

      got some nice jars at Target – I didn’t want to use Mason jars but found some other ones. Worked great. Thanks!

        Are they the ones from the Dollar Spot? If so, I bought the same ones!! 😉

          Yes! And they really looked good. I filled them with the snack mix, and then put a couple of Halloween Oreo cookies on the top. They were very well received. I told them they could munch on them whenever they want of course, but this weekend would be a good one while they watch Conference!! They were so thrilled. Thank you for all your good treats – and your regular ‘mom’ chocolate chip cookies are still the best!! I made them with Halloween chocolate chips (Target too!)

    About how much does this recipe make? Cups or guesstimate to give an idea on whether I need to double this recipe.

    This looks great! I will be fixing this for my daughter’s softball tournament this weekend. How long will it keep? Can I make on Friday night to have for Saturday night?
