The second fall hits, I mix up a bowl of this candy corn snack mix. And the next day I whip up another bowl, because the first is gone by then.

Here’s the deal, I’m not a fan of candy corn. Never have been. So I know how silly it sounds for me to claim that adding a few nuts to it makes a difference. But it does. Oh my heavens it does. 4 ingredients, less than five minutes, seriously make this stuff and give it a try. You’ll devour it so fast.

The Ultimate Candy Corn Snack Mix

Candy corn is gross. This candy corn snack mix is amazing. As magical as the holiday season itself.
Prep Time3 mins
Course: Snack
Servings: 12

Ingredients

  • 2 bags candy corn don't get the big pumpkins, just the standard corn. pumpkins are too much.
  • 1 cup honey roasted peanuts Planter's brand is by far the best
  • 1 cup honey roasted almonds
  • 1 cup honey roasted cashews

Instructions

  • Mix it in a bowl and eat it like it's popcorn. You know, timid and controlled to start, but ravenous and insatiable by the end. And though it's not technically "required" for the nuts to be honey roasted, the mix does end up being about a billion times better if they are.

What do you think?

    Chris is my kitchen guru, so it pains me to say it, but no one in our extended family of 25 liked this. It was the saddest waste of money and really good nuts.

    Thank you for the effort, and keep the recipes coming, but I felt it fair to share an honest alternative opinion to the other comments.

    My parents’ favorite bridge mix: equal parts red-skinned spanish peanuts (the little round ones) and candy corn. Easy and irresistible!

  3. Allison says:

    Yes! My mom is a retired teacher and growing up, every Halloween she would make something very similar to take to school for her students. Of course, we always snagged some before it left the house. She also adds Reese’s Pieces, which is really tasty, too!

  4. Jill says:

    I don’t know whether to love you or hate you.
    But of course love wins.

    Thank you for this one.

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
