Trick Or Treat Trail Mix Recipe @pinch

This is a great snack mix for Halloween, or anytime really! It has the perfect balance of salty and sweet. The coating on the peanuts is similar to caramel corn coating. Candy corn and fall-colored make this festive and even yummier. The peanuts and peanut butter Ritz bits make this a little different than other snack mix recipes. You can make this and add any seasonal candies you'd like if you want to serve beyond Halloween. It's very addictive. Favorite of my kids. I only make it once a year in October to keep it special. Everybody who tries it always asks for the recipe. ENJOY!
