I think that trail mix and snack mix are the easiest things to make for a party. This Ghostly Sweet and Salty Snack Mix is perfect for any Halloween party that’s happening this year!
It’s easy to toss together and it’s great for snacking before the party, during the party and it’s great to bag up to send home with friends and family after the party!
For this fun Ghostly Sweet and Salty Snack Mix I used these ghost sugar candy decorations from Wilton to create some of the ghost pretzels for this snack mix.
I also used some of Wilton‘s little candy eye calls to make the other little ghost pretzels for this mix. Both turned out some super cute ghosts pretzels for this snack.
I used the sprinkle mix to decorate candy-coated cereal pieces and I think it gave it just the right amount of Halloween color pop! I love orange, purple and green together when it comes to Halloween.
Then to pack the Ghostly Sweet and Salty Snack Mix up to send off to my family I used these fun Trick or Treat boxes that Wilton sent over.
Aren’t they the cutest!?! I love the little window so you can see the Ghostly Sweet and Salty Snack Mix inside.
