Halloween Monster Munch
I love holiday muddy buddy/snack mix recipes. I always make at least one and this year I am excited to share this monster munch recipe.
One of the things I love about making Halloween snack mixes is you can use up all the random ingredients you have floating around from holiday baking.
Grab the half empty bag of gummy fangs, the half empty bag of M&Ms, and throw them into this easy snack mix.
This is a great way to make a fun Halloween dessert that doesn't take hours to prepare. Plus you don't have to do any fancy decorating to make this mix. Just toss it together and pour it into a Halloween bowl and you are good to go!
This is a great snack to bring trick or treating! You can keep it in a small baggie and enjoy it while you walk the neighborhood.
I love serving a large bowl of this snack mix at our Halloween party. It is quick and easy and everyone loves it.
This is a quick overview of the simple ingredients that you'll need to make super fun Monster Munch! Specific measurements and step-by-step instructions are included in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
- White Chocolate Bark/candy melts
- Chex Cereal
- Candy Corn
- Candy Fangs
- Halloween M&Ms
Optional - popcorn, candy eyeballs, Cheerios, Halloween sprinkles, white chocolate chips, nuts, mini marshmallows, peanuts, Reese's pieces, or anything Halloween themed you need to use before the holiday.
Chex Cereal - You can use any flavor of Chex cereal you have or enjoy. We used Rice Chex but this would taste great with the peanut butter flavor, corn Chex, or vanilla Chex.
Large Microwave Safe Bowl/Measuring Cup - I use a 4 cup measuring cup to melt the almond bark in the microwave.
Gallon size Ziploc Bag
Ziploc Bag Holder Stand - I am a huge fan of these bag stands. They help reduce the number of ingredients I end up spiling all over the place.
Halloween Bowl/Black Bowl/Large Bowl
Baking Sheets - We are huge fans of these baking sheets with sides.
Parchment Paper - I love that I can use parchment paper to help make clean-up a breeze.
How to make Monster Munch
I've included complete instructions in the printable recipe card at the bottom of the post, but here's a quick version.
Step 1 - Gather all of the ingredients you want to use for this Monster Snack Mix.
Step 2 - Melt chocolate bark in a microwave-safe bowl in 30 second intervals making sure to stir after every interval.
Step 3 - Coat Chex cereal and pretzels with white chocolate bark, spread on a parchment lined baking sheet and let them set.

You can change out the Chex Cereal and use a popcorn mix to create a popcorn mixture for this snack mix instead of a Chex mix.
