Halloween is just around the corner and I wanted to share this yummy Halloween snack mix recipe with that we made this weekend. I also wanted to share these easy DIY wiggly eye buckets that are a fun way to give the mix to friends.
So before I jump into the recipe and buckets, I wanted to mention that I also have a Fall Sweet and Salty Snack Mix recipe that is really good (and addicting) but for these buckets, I wanted to make more of a kid mix. We are making these to give away to our little friends on Halloween.
So, my daughter said that kids need cheese balls in their snack mix, so that’s where we came up with the Halloween snack mix. We didn’t do it for this batch but for the batch we’re making on Halloween, we will be adding gummy worms to really make it extra Halloween-ish.
We doubled the recipe this last weekend because we needed a really large batch for a gathering. So, we have doubles of everything in the image below:
Also, you can tweak and add more/less of whatever you like. Here’s the recipe;
Halloween Snack Mix
The great thing about this mix is you can make it with whatever variation of halloween treats you have on hand! Here are some of my favorite things to add to it:
1-10 oz. Bag of Cheese Balls
2-Bags of Fall M&M’s – Feel free to mix and match! The Candy Corn Flavor, Autumn Colored Milk Chocolate, and the Ghoul’s Mix are all great options.
1-Bag Autumn Mix Brach’s Candy Corn and Pumpkins
1-Bag of Traditional Chex Mix
1-Bag of Caramel Corn or Caramel Corn Mix such as Chex Mix Popped Sweet and Salty with Carmel Corn or Target’s Monster Drizzle
1-Bag Reece’s Pieces
Note: Halloween Sixlets are a great addition to this mix if you can find them (you’ll have to cut open individual Sixlet bags).
Mix together and store in air tight container.
For the wiggly eye buckets, all we did was to glue wiggly eyes to white buckets. We found both the white buckets and package of eyes at Hobby Lobby.
We just put plastic treat bags in buckets and the filled them and tied them with bows. Such an easy way to give this mix with a Halloween ghostly twist 🙂

By the way, if you’re looking for fun Halloween printables, I made a set a couple years ago that are perfect for treat bags, gifts and parties.
Thanks for stopping by friends!
