Fall snack mix three ways! Featuring three kinds of amazing salty and sweet taste combos! Perfect to take somewhere — or let’s be honest, just have these snack mixes around the house for your personal use. I’m not here to judge :). Plus two free printables to turn any of these mixes into great fall or Halloween gifts! This post contains affiliate links.
Is there anything better than popping on a hoodie, watchin’ some fall TV and just munching some delicious snack mix? I want to make that fall scene a reality for you. Now I can’t control the crazy weather we’ve been having (but if I could, it would be hoodie weather, stat!), but I do have three different crazy delicious snack mix options here. Effort level range from the lowest of low key (literally open two bags) to a little more involved, but you know, not involved involved. You may use a few more bowls, but also you won’t be able to stop eating these sweet and salty snack mix masterpieces. That’s actually what inspired the printables. These fall snack mixes are so insanely good, I had to make their theme song, “you don’t have to go home but you can’t stay here.” And what makes giving snack mix a little more fun? A great printable to add a little more pizazz. If you want to go straight for the printable, see below, or click here for the Fall version click here for the Halloween printable. Otherwise, stay tuned for some snack mix remixing.

Fall Snack Mix Recipe – The Original Mix
No recipe card on this one: open a bag of candy corn, twist open a jar of honey roasted peanuts and pop them in a bowl. About a 1:1 ratio, but no rules on this one. Now this mix is crazy simple, but it is SO good. It tastes like a super delish Payday candy bar. Seriously it’s the peanut butter & jelly (simple! delicious!) of the snack mix world.
Fall Snack Mix Recipe ~ the Remix
Take it to the next level! Same idea: candy corn and peanuts, but mix in some Bugles and M&M’s. P.S. Anyone else out there ever have to call their mom from Walmart in order to find stuff on their list? Just because you’re tired of searching and know she’ll know right where something is? #sorrynotsorry So long story short, my mom is the only reason I was able to find the Bugles at Walmart. Thanks, Mom! For any other local Walmart shoppers, they’re in a weird second chip area with the Pringles over by the liquor aisle. Yeah, why not make a weird second section of chips in a totally different aisle for no reason at all?
Fall Snack Mix Monster Munch Recipe ~ AKA the super duper club mix remix
Let’s get crazy next level now. So I found this recipe from an amazing blogger that was one of the first people I followed on Pinterest. Plain Chicken posted the original here and it is the definition of “can’t stop, won’t stop” of the snack world. Anytime I have taken it somewhere, people ask for the recipe and remember it like years later. Now I did make a tweak here and added Bugles. Because like I found in the mix above, Bugles are crazytown delicious and just make everything tastier. This snack mix is a few more steps, but still easy peasy.
This recipe calls for 16 cups of popped popcorn. Now I do own an electric popcorn popper (in my defense, it was a gift!) but we have gotten a lot of use out of it over the years. But any method of popcorn popping would work just fine. Next step, melt your almond bark in the microwave until smooth — mine took about 2 minutes. Pour it over all the snack mix ingredients and mix it up!
Now mixing up this snack mix makes me think of that line in Jaws: “We’re gonna need a bigger boat.” But in this version, you’re gonna need a bigger bowl. I grabbed this insanely sized Thatsa bowl. It’s crazy huge. Like I could borderline carry one of my kids in it. This bowl will probably be the biggest bowl in your life, but I get so much use out of it. Find it here. Spread the finished mix on some wax paper to cool and then store it in an airtight container. Honestly, I just toss it back in the bowl I mixed it in. There’s no point washing it just to toss the the mix back into it.

Great ideas on the snack mix! Definitely going to try them! 💗
Thanks! I did a LOT of quality control taste testing, hehe. So I hope you love them! Thank you for stopping by!
I know this must sound a bit creepy but I just adore you. I’ve not stopped munching your Carmel apple snack and now plan on making this one ASAP! ( Walmart near us has the Bugles on the water isle.) Maybe cause they are salty and you had better pick up a 144 pack of water bottles to go with the Bugles.
Kelly, you’re so sweet and that absolutely made my day! Yay! So glad you liked the Caramel Apple mix and hope you love this one too. Good point on needed alllll the water to eat Bugles, lol! Actually that will help me remember where to find them on future trips, hehe. Seriously, thank you so much for stopping by and commenting — I appreciate you!
I have always last loved the original, so I’m super excited to try the remixes!
I hope you love them! They’re all hard to stop eating though!
