Completely addicting, this Halloween Monster Mash Party Mix has a little something for everyone and takes just 5 minutes to mix together.
One of my favorite things about Halloween is that rules don’t apply (fun rules, c’mon guys!). Homemade, fresh, all-natural, all those things really aren’t important.
Or, maybe they are? I don’t know.
But, for me at least, on Halloween, rules do not apply. The day is all about the most outlandish colors and costumes, tricks and treats, and simply having a good time.
Or, at the very least, trying…
Which is why this Halloween I will not be making any outrageous desserts or favor bags that take me hours to prepare. Who has time for that? I hardly have time to brush my teeth these days (kidding! I make time; but I can guarantee I’m multi-talking while I do it).
This amazing Party Mix, like my overall feelings toward Halloween, has no rules or limits. I didn’t go out of my way to buy ingredients for it, instead over the course of a week, as I shopped, if I saw something that looked fun or yummy, I would pick it up and add it to my Monster Mash Stash. I found most items at Homegoods (seriously, you guys, that place has so much awesome random candy) and Target.
My aim was to include goodies that were both salty and sweet and super colorful!
In keeping with easy, I added any leftover party mix to gift bags for O to give to his teachers.
