Quick & Easy Halloween Treat

Posted by on October 26, 2012

This “Monster Mix” party mix is an easy, quick and inexpensive treat for a Halloween get together. Or, portion the mix into treat bags or mason jars to give to teachers, coworkers, or party goers as a party favor.

In a large mixing bowl, combine:

3 c. Golden Grahams cereal (“mummy scabs”)
2 c. mini marshmallows (“ghost poop”)
2 c. candy corn (“goblin teeth”)
1 c. semisweet chocolate morsels (“witch warts”)

Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container and use within two days. (The marshmallows lose their fluffiness and the cereal loses its crunch after that.) Yield: 16 servings.

To get the look shown, I used small mason jars ($1.49 each at World Market) and cut scraps of Halloween fabrics into 6-inch squares with pinking shears to cover the lids. Screw on the collar and finish with a ribbon or a piece of twine (use what you have!).
