It’s 9 p.m. Everyone is in bed. You are sitting for a little quiet time. THEN, all of a sudden…down the steps bounds your 8 year old…he forgot that he signed you up to take a Halloween treat for his classroom mates!
Sound familiar? Oh yes…happened to me more than once!
So what’s a Mom to do? Run to the pantry and in about 5 minutes, toss together Candy Corn Party Mix!
With just a few ingredients, a bowl, spoon and microwave…you can have this Candy Corn Party Mix done in minutes and you can go back to your quiet time. It’s perfect to send in for Halloween Classroom Parties, give to neighbors, friends, even family!
I used Gluten-Free Chex cereal and Gluten-Free Pretzels, making this a great Gluten-Free Treat. There are also raisins, candy corn and fun Halloween sprinkles. And to hold it all together, and because chocolate makes everything better, I melted white chocolate Almond Bark. But you can certainly substitute whatever you have on hand or what your family likes best, using white chocolate is the best though.
To give the Candy Corn Party Mix for a gift, you can fill cellophane bags with the mix and tie with a ribbon. Or for a little larger gift, add the Candy Corn Party Mix to a jar and tie with a ribbon. You can find the FREE Printables over on the Halloween Printable Page.
