Candy Corn Crunch Halloween Mix

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 Crunch Halloween Mix!

With just a few ingredients, a bowl, spoon and microwave…you can have this Candy Corn Crunch done in minutes and you can go back to your quiet time.

I bought everything I needed at Walmart. I used Chex cereal, pretzels, 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.

To use the Candy Corn Crunch for a gift, add a couple of large handfuls to cellophane bags, found in the Party supply area at Walmart, then tie them with a cute ribbon. Or for a little large gift, find some buckets to fill with the Halloween Mix. There is a whole section with $1 Halloween goodies near the Party supplies.

    I’ve been really excited to make this since I saw it last week on your blog, well this weekend Walmart has it in their ad, but they are saying you need 3 THREE, 24 oz packages of white chocolate baking bars?!?!? 3 packs? holy cow that is WAY more than you have in your recipe, and everything else is that same…..I’m thinking that was a mistake in the walmart add? I am so loving your site, just found it a couple of weeks ago, I so want to come to your house and be your friend…but not in a creepy way.

    • CupcakeLady says:

      Hi Marye Jane, I haven’t seen the ad yet, but it seems to be wrong. The amount I have in the recipe was the amount from the original recipe that Walmart sent me when they asked me to make the recipe. I will double check that recipe, but I’m pretty sure the one I posted is correct.
      I’m thrilled you are enjoying Hoosier Homemade!

    • CupcakeLady says:

      The original recipe calls for 8 oz of white chocolate bars, which is the amount I have in the recipe. Hope that helps.
