Mix up some Monster Mash Munch for Halloween

Monster Mash Munch

Monster Mash Munch: It’s Halloween, your kids come home and surprise, they’ve invited some friends to come over before trick or treating. And, as usual, they want a snack.

I have a fun go-to snack that can, with a quick trip to the grocery, be immersed in as much into the Halloween theme as you want. Or, you can just use what you have at home and make do.

Monster Mash Munch is a fun trail mix type snack that can be made with a variety of items, as long as you have popcorn for the start.


Trail mixes are easy to come up with and can be adapted to pretty much any theme or holiday depending on what snacks and candy you use.

For this one, I went for the Halloween theme by using some common snack foods found this time of year.

First, start with your favorite kind of popcorn. To make a large bowl of the mix, I used two bags of microwave popcorn.

Make sure when you add the popcorn in to not poor it in or the kernels that didn’t pop will get mixed in by mistake. Add in by the handful instead.

One of the fun things on the grocery shelves this time of year are childhood cereals of Count Chocula, Boo Berry, and Frankenberry. They work great in a snack mix. But this year I found a Monster Mash cereal that has all three plus Fruit Brute and Yummy Mummy. I don’t remember those last two as a kid but they existed.


Next, add something sweet. I found some Halloween color M&Ms. You also need to add salty. While any pretzel will do, you can find some Halloween-shaped pretzels this time of year. I found pumpkin and bat shapes.

And, you can’t have a Halloween mix without some candy corn, so that got thrown in as well.

To pull everything together, I melted some chocolate chips and drizzled some chocolate on top.


I threw in a few candy eyeballs leftover from last Halloween for effect.

Put it all in a Halloween-themed bowl and serve. Or, wrap up in individual treat bags.

The result is a tasty Halloween mix that my mom couldn’t get enough of and the neighbor’s kids fought over.


While these are the elements I used, you can use whatever you want. You can mix up the candies to fit your personal taste. Adding cheese-flavored crackers or peanuts are common in these mixes.

And if you don’t want to go to the grocery, look through the snacks you have on hand. Maybe you can come up with a mix there.

Whatever you use in the mix, make it fun for the kids and grownups at Halloween for a spooky good time.
