Scarecrow Crunch Recipe (Festive fall treat!!)


Scarecrow Crunch Recipe

Fall is in the air – and you may want to keep this yummy snack in mind for upcoming parties!

Jamie here!  I had some extra Brach’s Autumn Mellowcreme mix that was left-over from a fall party at youth group.  Since I can’t be trusted around that stuff, I decided this was the perfect opportunity to try to make Scare Crow Crunch for the kids!

All you need is a festive assortment of salty and sweet snacks – like:

  • Harvest Mellowcreme Mix (or just plain candy corn is ok)
  • Reeses Pieces
  • Tiny Pretzel Twists
  • Caramel Popcorn (like Poppycock or Cracker Jacks)
  • Chocolate Teddy Grahams
  • Nuts
  • *Or just replace most of the above with Turtle Chex Mix

I happened to have a whole lot of turtle Chex Mix from a recent Walgreens deal – so I used that along with a box of Teddy Grahams, some leftover peanuts, a handful of chocolate chips, and of course – the Brach’s Harvest Mix.  Stir it all together and see if it looks about right – maybe you’ll wander over to your cabinet and find some stale Halloween sprinkles from last year – you should probably throw those in too for extra pizazz.

Now don’t you dare tell your kiddos that this is Chex Mix and candy corn – because they’re smart and they’ll know you’re recycling stuff they weren’t all that excited about earlier this week.  But you tell them it’s “Scarecrow Crunch” and they’ll be all over it!

My guys LOVE this stuff!  All their friends at school have been asking for them to bring extra to share – that’s how you know it’s a success :)

    Sounds Yummy

    Another good recipe is:
    1 bag candy corn
    1 bag M&M’s
    1 can salted Peanuts

    Throw all together in a bowl and you can’t stay out of it.

      No kidding – that sounds fabulous too! My family always did salted peanuts and candy corn together so it would taste like a PayDay – but we never added M&Ms. I’ll have to try that!
