Scarecrow Chex Mix Recipe

    sweet and salty chex mix

    Whether you want to call this chex mix recipe a scarecrow snack mix like we have or go more general and call this a fall snack mix doesn’t really matter. Either way, this recipe is delicious and the perfect treat for the season.

    If you’ve ever had a sweet chex mix recipe such as a puppy chow mix recipe or Christmas moose munch, then you know just how irresistible a mix of goodies like this can be.

    This sweet and salty chex mix recipe has all the candy treats of a holiday snack mix and all the crunchy components you love to munch on. To create this autumn chex mix recipe, you’ll need a mix of rice chex cereal, caramel corn, caramel peanuts, pretzel twists, animal graham crackers, candy corn, candy pumpkins, and Reese’s pieces.

    You can certainly add your own favorite additions such as candy M&Ms or salted nuts, but we love the combination shared here in this recipe and feel that it makes a good starting point for any chex mix recipe.

    You also have the option of drizzling some white or dark chocolate over your caramel corn and letting that dry before you mix the caramel corn with the rest of the ingredients. This is a technique that is popularly done for the Christmas holiday mixes.

    For the best results, we recommend storing this fall chex mix recipe in tightly enclosed treat bags or in a large ziplock bag so it stays crunchy and fresh for as long as possible.
