Here’s a fun new Halloween Treat Recipe I came up with.  It’s easy and quick to make, plus it’s super festive (and so yummy).

Candy Corn Crunch:

Ingredients

Plain  Popcorn (If you buy the microwave kind, you want the natural) , popped, kernels removed

2 cups pretzels, broken

1 bag Wilton Candy Melts (I used Orange)

Halloween-themed Sprinkles/Shots/Jimmies

Candy Corn (small bag)

Directions
Place popcorn and broken pretzels into large mixing bowl.

Melt the Wilton melts in microwave in 20 second intervals (usually a minute or less. I stir with a spatula in between)

Pour melted candies over the popcorn and pretzels and mix until coated.  You can also do this on a large piece of parchment paper.  A note- this really mixes best when done by hand. It gets messy.

After the popcorn and pretzels are coated, add your sprinkles and candy corn and mix just a bit to get everything blended.  Let “dry” for about half an hour and seal in airtight container.

In airtight container, this crunch mix will last a week to 10 days.

Happy Halloween!

  • Meant crunch, my mind is on cookies for some reason…Candy corn to me is one of those candies you can’t help but eat even when you don’t like it. Eh!

  • I’m not a huge candy corn fan but these cookies are worth a try. :)
