Halloween Monster Mix

Happy Thursday!! My most favorite day of the week! The weekend is in sight!

Today I am going to share our FAVORITE Fall treat…Monster Mix. It’s also one of the kids favorite things on our fall live list.Processed with VSCO with t1 preset

This is super simple my friends {because you know my culinary skills…} and my kids have asked to make for weeks because they loved it so much last year! I also skip any extra steps that would qualify this for Pinterest…no labels, no matching bowls…and while I greatly admire those that can whip that up, I can not…and gotta tell ya, the kids don’t seem to care! Just use whatcha got!

Here is the shopping list I use, but get creative and add whatever you think your kiddos would like:

Candy Corn- Goblin Teeth

Bugles- Witches fingernails

Tootsie Rolls- Bat Poop **their fave**

Cinnamon Toast Crunch- Monster Scabs

Marshmallows- Baby Ghost Eggs/ Ghost Poop {my kids think poop is just too funny}

Pretzel sticks- Witch Broom Sticks or Spider Legs

Raisins- Witches Warts

I like to buy it on an outing to Walmart without them so I can have them in bowls set up as a surprise…then I insist they are really Goblin teeth, etc.  And while they totally know they are not, they giggle and carry on at the fact I won’t admit it’s candy.

Give em each a spoon and an empty bowl and voila! They create their own mix, which they stir up at the end, and throw in a baggie with their name on it. And a bonus is I don’t have to think of after school snacks for several days!Processed with VSCO with t1 presetProcessed with VSCO with t1 preset
