ingredients for halloween snack mix.

popcorn – I use an air popper to pop corn with little fuss. You can also use caramel corn or microwave popcorn if you prefer. You can also pop regular popcorn in your microwave.

Sweet Cheetos “bag of bones” – This is a seasonal item that comes in cinnamon sugar as well as cheese-flavored. Be on the look out for other bone-type snacks, like Scooby Doo graham cracker sticks.

pretzels – Small bagged pretzels are perfect for this. If you find the bat-shaped ones, so much the better.

candy eyes – Find these in the cake decorating section of your store or on Amazon.

Halloween M&Ms – these come in orange, green, and purple. You can use another mix if you prefer.
