This Halloween Snack Mix is the perfect mix of sweet, salty, crunchy and chewy, and it’s sure to be a family favorite! Keep it in layers or mix it all up.

Part of me cringes to share this Halloween Snack Mix idea. This is not healthy. Or trim. But it is a tradition that I’ve been doing for my family for the past 16 years. So. Sometimes that’s more important!

I’ve always loved the combination of sweet and salty. I came up with this combination that became Monster Munch before a Halloween Bunco night.


Get a big container. I used to use a large plastic bowl. But then I found this canister and I knew it would be perfect. I love the way the layers are visible inside it.

The layers are:

  • thin, extra salty pretzel sticks
  • cheddar flavor-blasted goldfish
  • mini oreo cookies
  • peanut M&Ms
  • peanut butter M&Ms
  • plain M&Ms
  • candy corn
  • yogurt covered craisins
  • chocolate covered raisins
  • honey roasted peanuts

I try to get about equal amounts of each item and then just layer them in, alternating sweet with salty.

I’d love to say that maybe someday I’ll find a way to make this healthy. But that’s just not going to happen. So this Monster Munch is one of those things that I allow myself to indulge in small amounts once or twice over the Halloween season. And then I’m back on the plan my next meal! Because my Monster Munch is Simply. Memorable. and Simply. Irresistible.
