The Best Monster Munch Halloween Snack Mix

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’s a tradition I’ve been making for my family for the past 16 years.


Sometimes that’s more important!

large glass container with lid on kitchen counter with sign reading "monster munch." sweet and salty snacks are layered inside the jar.

I’ve always loved the combination of sweet and salty.

I came up with this combination of snacks and candies that became my Monster Munch recipe before a Halloween Bunco night.

How to Make a Halloween Snack Mix

First, get a big container.

I used to use a large plastic bowl with a lid and mix everything up inside it.

But then I found this glass canister and I knew it would be perfect.

Don’t you love the way the layers look inside it?

Me too!!

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.

And that’s Okay!

This Monster Munch is one of those things I allow myself to enjoy in small, measured out amounts once or twice over the Halloween season.

Then I’m back on the Trim Healthy Mama plan for my next meal!

Because my Monster Munch is Simply. Memorable. and Simply. Irresistible.
