The Pioneer Woman’s Halloween Chex Mix

If you have not followed The Pioneer Woman on The Food Network you have definitely missed out!! From her website….Ree Drummond is synonymous with The Pioneer Woman. It’s the title of her website, her Food Network show, her cookbooks, and more.

She has so many delicious recipes and she is a delight to watch on her show. One thing she hates is bananas. She only has two recipes that include bananas.

Her recipe for Halloween Chex Mix is sooo good and a delicious appetizer for your Halloween Party.

The only trouble you will need to double or triple the recipe because your friends and family will love it so much.

This Halloween Snack Mix is full of Chex cereal, pretzels, Candy Corn, Reese’s Pieces, Salted Cashews, chocolate chips, and candy eyeballs. It’s easy to make and totally addictive.

You will need the following INGREDIENTS…

I know some folks have a love/hate relationship with candy corn. So, if you don’t like it leave it out.
