I had a neat opportunity to hang out with a few 3rd graders from our little school on Tuesday afternoon and we thought it would be fun to make an easy little snack mix that they could take back to their class to give to all of their classmates.
Because I am horrible at planning ahead, I had to ask the hubs on Tuesday morning if he wouldn’t mind running to the store to get the 3 ingredients I needed for this simple fall snack mix.
While he was at the store he kept texting me to say that he couldn’t find fall-colored M&Ms or candy corn.
Of course I was incredulous because WHAT??? Who doesn’t have candy corn in stock the week before Halloween???
He texted me, “Looks like the major league trick or treaters ransacked the place.” 🙂
He did end up finding some candy corn, but we ended up with the crispy M&Ms, instead of plain – a fact that didn’t really bother anyone because, well, M&M’s.
Simple and really yummy – tastes like a candy bar!
- 1 cup candy corn
- 1 cup salted peanuts
- 1 cup M&Ms
- Mix everything together. BAM.

This post came at a perfect time! Yesterday, I just bought the stuff to make your other candy corn snack mix with corn syrup that you have to bake. Although I never had it, I figured it would be good. Since some of the ingredients are the same in this recipe, I decided to do this one instead. I figured this one is a little healthier (lol) and definitely easier. I made 2 types. One was the way you posted which is delicious and in the second one I added the same amount as everything else of waffle shaped pretzels broke in half. The 2nd batch was less sweet and also delicious. I ‘d rate both versions with 5 stars. Incidentally, I’m not a huge fan of candy corn but when it is mixed with everything else it’s really good. Thanks for the new recipe. I’m thinking about using it for Thanksgiving dinner favors. I love your blog!!!
