This Halloween Popcorn Snack Mix is going to a favorite with kids and adults. Made with kettle popcorn, candy corn, and mini Reese’s pieces and cups, it’s going to be the hit of the party.
I can’t believe Halloween is only two days. I blinked and October was over. So much for sharing this recipe a little sooner in case you had parties this past weekend. But you’ve still got a couple days to make this and trust me, you’ll want to.
I feel like I should warn you up front that this Halloween Popcorn Snack Mix is highly addictive and you probably should not be left alone with it. . . all my boys will vouch for me when I say that.
I’ve never been one who goes all out with the decorations at Halloween, but I usually pull a few things out.
Well this year I’ve been a complete slacker and finally four days ago hung a “Boo” sign on the front of my house and put some wood “BOO” letters I made on my kitchen table. I know, I pulled out all the stops this year (lol!).
Since I’ve been so lame with the decorations, I figured I’d at least make something Halloween-y so I don’t feel like such a failure.
This Halloween Popcorn Snack Mix is so simple to make and is the best treat to give to your friends and neighbors (which you will definitely want to do or you’ll end up eating the entire batch yourself).
I used a bag of Reese’s Baking Peanut Butter Cups and Reese’s Pieces Candy, but if you can’t find that, you can just buy a bag of the mini peanut butter cups and a bag of Reese’s pieces.
This is the perfect mix for any party and will definitely be the hit of the party.
- 2 bags microwave kettle popcorn, popped
- 1 1/2 cups candy corn (divided)
- 1 1/2 cups dry-roasted, salted peanuts (divided)
- 1 bag (8.5 oz) Reese’s Baking Peanut Butter Cups and Reese’s Pieces Candy*
- 1/2 cup mini Reese’s pieces
- 1 pound vanilla/white almond bark, broken into chunks
- Chocolate chips for drizzle (optional)
- Line two large cookie sheets with parchment or wax paper, set aside.
- In a large bowl, add popcorn, 1 cup of the candy corn and 1 cup of the peanuts.
- Melt the almond bark in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring after each interval, until smooth, 1 to 3 minutes (depending on your microwave).
- Pour melted almond bark over popcorn mixture and stir until popcorn is well coated. Add in the remaining candy corn, peanuts and the Reese’s candy mixture. Gently toss just a few times.
- Divide mixture onto prepared cookie sheets and gently spread out. Sprinkle mini Reese’s pieces on top and let mixture dry completely, then break into clumps. Drizzle with melted chocolate chips if desired.
The Reese’s, Baking Peanut Butter Cups and Reese’s Pieces Candy is down the baking aisle with the chocolate chips. I know Walmart carries it, but I’m not sure what other stores do. Here is what it looks like.
You can use any butter flavor microwave popcorn if you’d like, but we love this using kettle corn.
Make sure you pull out any unpopped kernals.
