This sweet and salty snack mix is a festive treat for Halloween or Thanksgiving. Make a big batch of this fall snack mix recipe and enjoy it all week!
I am not much of a fall house decorator. I wish I had a better eye for house decor but instead of using my time to decorate I'd rather make festive treats. So I came up with this recipe for a fall snack mix that is perfect for autumn.
This fall treat contains only 7 ingredients and can literally be mixed together in 5 minutes. Just mix everything in a big bowl and you are done. No baking, no messy bowls and no stress!
What ingredients are needed for this Fall Snack Mix?
- salted pretzels
- Reeses Pieces
- chocolate chips
- crispy rice cereal
- salted peanuts
- candy corn
- fall harvest candy
Can you substitute ingredients ?
Yes, of course! Feel free to mix and match other types of cereal, baking chips, nuts and candy. If you'd like a peanut free mix, you can always omit the peanuts and use m&m's instead of the Reeses pieces.
You could easily turn this into a Christmas holiday snack mix recipe by using another candy or holiday themed m&m's. This is such an easy versatile recipe because you can make it however you'd like.
- roasted almonds or other nuts
- butterscotch chips or other chips such as cinnamon, white chocolate or caramel
- toasted coconut
- animal crackers or another mini cookie
- toffee bits
- Chex Mix
- Cheerios or another cereal
The possibilities are endless!
How do you store the leftovers?
I keep my sweet and salty snack mix in a big airtight container and serve it in small bowls. I also make individual snack bags of this fall snack mix to add to packed lunches or for portion control. Yes, I could eat the whole bowl!
It is also a good idea to pack individual bags to serve at an outdoor party. With the pandemic, many people are having outside gatherings and this is a good way to distribute individual snacks.
