Halloween Chex Mix Recipe

We have taken our favorite chex mix ingredients, and topped them with a caramel or brown sugar glaze. Baked it all together and then tossed in the candy. Such a fun mix!

Sweet & Salty Halloween Chex Mix Ingredients:

  • ¾ cup butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 tbsp. Vanilla
  • 3 cups rice chex cereal – you can use any chex you like- corn chex, etc.. or, use a mix of different kinds of chex!
  • 2 cups pretzels
  • 2 cups bugles
  • 1 cup M&Ms ghoul mix – you can use regular or peanut m&m candies, we used peanut!
  • ½ cup Reese’s Pieces

Halloween Party Mix Directions

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Note: Make sure you use parchment paper, and not wax paper, since this does go in the oven. Also, you will want to use one of your large baking sheets for this recipe. If you don’t have a larger one you may have to divide the ingredients in half and make two batches.

Step 2: In a medium saucepan, heat butter over medium heat, until melted.

Step 3: Stir in brown sugar, and heat over medium high, until it begins to simmer. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla.

Step 4: To your baking sheet, add rice chex, pretzels, and bugles. Stir to combine and mix the ingredients.

Step 5: Pour the sauce over the cereal mixture.

Step 6: Stir the mixture to coat everything in the sauce.

Step 7: Bake in your preheated oven for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through.

Step 8: Allow the mixture to cool slightly, and add to a very large bowl. Add M&Ms and Reese’s pieces and toss together.

Store in an airtight container at room temperature, or for an even longer lasting treat, pop it into the refrigerator.
