This mix is perfect by the handful and very, very sweet. Kids will love the mini marshmallows and adults will be picking the M&M’s and peanuts out! Fill favor/treat bags or set out a big bowl at your next party. Either way, this is one treat that won’t be leftover! Make sure to check out the first party mix in this series, Spooky Forest Halloween Party Mix.
To begin, preheat your oven to 300°F. In a microwave safe bowl, combine 1/4 cup maple syrup, two tablespoons butter, and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Microwave on high for about one minute, or until butter is melted. Stir until smooth.
In a medium bowl, combine four cups cocoa flavored rice cereal and one cup peanuts. I used unsalted peanuts but salted would be fine to use also. Mix these up and pour the syrup mixture over it, tossing to coat.
Spread the mixture onto a large sheet pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, stirring halfway through.
While the cereal mixture is baking, add two cups mini marshmallows, one cup candy corn, and one cup M&M’s to a medium bowl. Mix together.
When the cereal mixture is completely cooled, add it to the candy mixture and toss together. Get the kids involved in making this fun and tasty Sweet Halloween Party Mix! Enjoy!
Amazon has some really great Halloween favor/treat bags, these are some of my favorites!
