Halloween White Trash Snack Mix - An Affair from the Heart

This halloween white trash snack mix is fun to make because it’s so customizable.  If you are like me, and end up with bags of chips, cookies, cereal, pretzels and such that are open and there is a little of this and a little of that left over, this is perfect.  I make it year round, and have even blogged a Valentine version of it, but it was time to make some for Halloween and share it with you all.



Halloween White Trash Snack Mix - An Affair from the Heart

^LOVE it?  PIN it!^


My pantry has gotten a little out of control lately.  I’m not sure you read my post I did back in June, when I had an amazing professional organizer named Melanie from Organized Kind of Life do a complete over haul on my pantry?  Well, I’m not ashamed to say, I threatened my kids within an inch of their lives with keeping it clean.  They did really good for most of the summer.  Then I’m not sure what happened, but all of the sudden, they all began falling into old habits again.  Leaving empty containers and putting stuff away in the wrong places because it’s just easier.

Well, I have to admit, each time I open my pantry these days, I think, “I really need to get this back up to Melanie standards,” and then I close the door again thinking that it’s going to take me at least 2 hours to do so.  I started at least getting some of the clutter out the other day, and when I saw the almost empty bags of chips, etc… I thought about this snack mix and I started gathering up “the goods.”

What Do I need to make this Halloween White Trash Snack Mix?

  • Vanilla Almond Bark
  • cereal like corn flakes, Cheerios, Crispix
  • peanuts, or other favorite nut
  • cookies, golden Oreos or Nilla Wafers
  • pretzels, break into smaller pieces
  • corn chips, like Fritos or Bugles
  • Candy, candy corn or M&M’s
  • Sprinkles, make it festive, theme it for holidays
  • candy eyes for this Halloween version


Halloween White Trash Mix prep

Cover a large cookie sheet with parchment paper and start layering your cereals, chips, pretzels, nuts.


Typically I use with Fritos or Bugles for the corn chip part, or even a combination of both.  But this time, I was fresh out of either.  I did, however have a box of cornflakes,  that I keep on hand for when I make my mom’s potato casserole, my “Fried” Ice Cream Pie, or my oven baked chicken sandwiches.  They were a great addition to this mix!  Then I used multigrain Cheerios, Crispix, and waffle pretzels that I broke into smaller pieces.  I added some dry roasted and salted peanuts, and candy corn next.



Halloween White Trash Mix prep

Melt your vanilla almond bark and coat the mixture in it.  When it’s still wet, add the sprinkles.  Then I added the candy eyeballs.  Because when Betty Crocker makes candy eyeballs, and give you that option?  You use it, people.   Let the whole thing set up.  Then break it into clusters.
