  • 9 x13 baking dish
  • saucepan
  • large bowl


Caramel Syrup

  • 1 cup butter
  • ½ cup light corn syrup
  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

Snack Mix

  • 18 ounce box corn chex cereal
  • 2 cups candy corn
  • 2 cups cream pumpkin candies
  • 2 cups mini pretzels
  • 1 package candy eyes


  • Prep. Preheat the oven to 275°. Pour the cereal into a 9 x13 baking dish.
  • Make the syrup. Bring all the syrup ingredients to a boil except for the baking soda. It doesn't need to thicken or cook. Add the baking soda and stir.
  • Bake the cereal and syrup. Pour the syrup on top of the Chex and gently stir, trying not to break too much of the cereal. Bake at 275° for 45 minutes, stirring a few times.
  • Cool. Let the cereal cool completely before adding the candy. When it's ready, the coating will be hard and crunchy.
  • Mix. Add the candy corn, candy pumpkins, mini pretzels, and candy eyes.


You can also add Halloween M&Ms to this mix.
There's no need to spray the pan, there's enough butter in the syrup.
