Candy Corn Sweet & Salty Chex MixLittle Brother wanted to make a fun treat the other day and there is hardly anything easier to make (especially for little helpers in the kitchen) than a fun Chex mix! With the pop­u­lar­ity of the “Christ­mas Crack” & then our patriotic red, white, & blue Chex mix, I decided that we should try a fun Halloween inspired version! It’s the sweet & salty goodness of the other versions, but with some fun candy corn & Halloween colors! Candy Corn Snack Mix

Sweet & Salty Candy Corn Chex Mix


  • 6 cups Rice Chex
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 cups salted peanuts
  • 1 cup mixed nuts (chopped)
  • 1 bag (approx 12 ounces) candy corn
  • 1/2 lb. vanilla almond/candy bark (or white chocolate)
  • 1/4 pack­age of orange candy melts
  • 1/4 pack­age of yellow candy melts


Halloween Candy Corn Snack Mix1. In a large bowl, com­bine all dry ingredients. We dumped in all of our ingredients and then I let me little helped stir to his little heart’s content.

2. Melt the vanilla almond bark. I personally think this sets up a little better than true “white chocolate”, but I’m sure white chocolate would be fine. I always just use the microwave, but you can get a smoother melt by going with the fancier dou­ble boiler method! Do whatever you have time for!

3. Pour melted “white choco­late” over the dry ingre­di­ents in the bowl and gently com­bine (you don’t want to break all the cereal). Every­thing should be coated–how well coated is totally up to your dis­cre­tion. I’m not a fan of being too sweet, so I tend to use a lit­tle less. If it’s not coated to your lik­ing, then just melt some more and add it in. Candy Corn crack4. Pour mix­ture on to a large cookie sheet(s) lined with wax paper. While it’s dry­ing, repeat step 2 with the colored candy melts. Then drizzle the colored melts over the top.

5. Once it’s all dry, then you can just mix it back together in a large bowl! I opted for something black and a little “Halloween-ish” for this one!  Candy Corn & Peanuts Snack MixThe combination of the salty from the peanuts & mixed nuts is great with the candy corn and sweet coating. If you’d like it a little more salty, adding in pretzels to this mix is always good. I was just opting to keep it gluten free. And, I think it’s still super good just as is this way!
