Happy Halloween! Well, almost…

I’m not sure if a severe case of laziness has set in, but the last few posts I’ve done have been ridiculously easy with today’s recipe being absolutely no exception! This takes exactly 2.41 minutes to make. Find the ingredients, pour them into a bowl, stir. That’s it. 🙂

I know there are lots of you out there going to Halloween parties and you’re expected to bring some sort of snack to share. Well, if you’re not super organized and have a million things to do, you’re not going to have the time to make a thing because hello!! you’ve gotta take care of your kids, get costumes ready, etc..

Enter Monster Munch.

This is the recipe for you!

You know who you are!

And by “you” I mean everyone.

Who doesn’t love chocolate? Or peanuts? Or Oreos? Or M&M’s?


What did I tell ya! This is the treat for you.

This stuff is great to have around for the 3 o’clock munchies, perfect as an after school snack or wrap it up and give as a gift! What teacher wouldn’t love these? I originally made this a few weeks ago for some lovely ladies I met up with in Nashville who turned it into a midnight snack. How versatile!

Moral of the story: Make this. It’s easy. It’s tasty. Everyone loves it. The end.

Have a great weekend!

  1. yum!! this would be so fun for a kids halloween party. A good way to use up halloween candy too.

  2. This looks dangerous:)

  6. Hi! I just wanted to thank you for your recipe. Last night I went to a party with friends, to someone’s house that I did not know. I wanted to bring something but didn’t know what because I didn’t know the people. I got on foodgawker, and your recipe sounded perfect! I brought a version of your mix (kettle corn, peanuts, Reese’s, mini Oreos, pretzels & sour orange & green gummi worms (I picked them out one by one out of the bin..they were sold out of candy corn)) It was a hit! First the host was suprised I even brought something, and secondly people really enjoyed it! I was getting a chuckle out of one guy who just couldn’t keep his hands out of the mix.. little did he know who made it! Thank you for such a great idea! It’s easy & delicious!
