Oh my heart! It’s September 1st!! Cupcake Diaries “30 Days of Halloween” 2016 is officially underway and I’m over here in Northern Utah doing a happy dance. I’m kicking off the series in a sweet way with a treat that’s perfect for any Halloween gathering. Featuring festive M&M’s, candy corn, Halloween sprinkles, pretzels, and candy eyeballs, Halloween Chex Treat makes a wonderfully massive bowl of gooey goodness to serve to a crowd.
I don’t think there’s anything better than making Halloween recipes in August. When mid-August arrives and the kids start going back to school, I’m all about getting into fall goodness! And in preparation for this year’s “30 Days of Halloween” series, I was more than happy to start making Halloween grub. I started the Halloween fun with this Halloween Chex Treat that made us and a few of our neighbors quite happy! This party-sized bowl is bright, festive, and super yummy.
I love this treat for the taste, the colors, and because it’s so easy to serve at a party. Guests can use plastic cups to hold the treat or they can add it to their plate of other goodies. It’s got a great combo of sweet and salty and all kinds of yummy textures.
