    This one's not exactly a "Halloween" mix, but you could add Halloween M&M's? Or I guess you could add candy corn instead of the chocolate chips/M&M's.

    1 (14.5 ounces) Honey Nut Cheerios OR plain Cheerios
    1 (10 ounces) package bear shaped grahams (Teddy Grahams)
    1 (10 ounces) bag mini marshmallows
    1 (12 ounces) bag semisweet chocolate chips (or another flavor like peanut butter, etc., if you like) OR M&M's

    Halloween Party Mix

    Recipe By : Taste of Home
    Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
    Categories : Appetizer/Snack

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    1 box Ritz miniature peanut butter filled
    crackers
    1 -11 oz. pkg. small pretzel twists
    1 cup dry roasted peanuts
    1/2 cup butter
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup light corn syrup
    2 Tbs. vanilla
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1 -18 oz. pkg. candy corn
    1 -10 oz. pkg. plain M&M's

    Combine the peanut butter filled Ritz bitz, pretzels and peanuts and place in a large greased baking pan (I used my turkey roaster). Set aside.

    In saucepan combine butter, sugar and corn syrup. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Boil for 5 minutes.

    Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and baking soda. Mixture will foam up.

    Pour over the combined pretzel mixture and stir until coated.

    Bake in a preheated 250 oven for 45 minutes. Be sure to stir well every 10 minutes.

    After baking pour out onto wax paper lined cookies sheets and break mixture apart while still warm.

    When cooled completely toss with candies. Store in Tupperware or other airtight container.

    NOTES : This makes about 16 cups of party mix. Looks cute when placed in festive Fall or Halloween bags and tied with raffia or ribbon.

    There are some cute kids ideas on this site:


    http://www.kidskuisine.com/asp/recipe.asp?recipe=90

    An example is:




    Bloody Popcorn

    Notes:
    Be sure to use food paste, not the food coloring that is sold in the grocery store.

    Ingredients:
    2 qt. popped pop corn
    2 Tbsp. melted butter
    red food paste


    Preparation:
    In a large bowl add the popcorn. Add a bit of the red food paste to the melted butter, and drizzle over the pop corn. Stir gently to spread over the color red.
