Need a festive snack for Halloween? This sweet and salty one is cute, quick and easy. Just mix together some pretzels, chopped up Oreos, peanuts and candy. Bind the mixture together with some melted white chocolate, break into chunks and enjoy!
This yummy treat would be cute in little bags for your goblin visitors later this month. I found the original recipe on Your Home Based Mom- she has a version for every holiday, I think! Could this snack be the reason for the jack-o-lantern's toothless grin?
Candy Corn Cookie Crunch
adapted slightly from Your Home Based Mom. She has detailed instructions here.
1 lb. almond bark candy coating or white chocolate
14 Oreos, broken into pieces- I used the Halloween ones with orange filling
1 and 1/2 cups pretzels, broken- I used the thin straight ones
1 cup candy corn
1/2 cup peanuts
1/4 cup Reeses Pieces
1/2 cup Peanut M&Ms (fall colors)
Cover a cookie sheet with waxed paper or foil. Spread the broken pretzels, broken cookies, peanuts, and about 3/4 of the candy corn on the prepared cookie sheet. Melt the white chocolate or candy coating until smooth, according to package directions.
Drizzle the melted white chocolate over the pretzel mixture, spreading with a spatula if needed. Before it sets, sprinkle on the remaining candy corn, M&Ms, Reeses Pieces, and sprinkles. Place the tray into the refrigerator until set. Break into pieces and enjoy!
