Halloween means candy. And here at Valley, we LOVE candy. So naturally, we want to share with you all the ways you can incorporate candy into every aspect of your life this Halloween season. We don’t know what it is about the Original Chex Mix exactly, but all we know is that once you start eating it, you cannot stop. You either shovel it in by the handful or pick out your favorite parts, but either way you never want to stop munching. So inspired by the addictive nature of this party stack, we created three Halloween themed Chex Mix recipes that give you ALL the candy, all the flavors and all the Halloween fun.

Peanut Butter Monster Munch

1. Take Corn Chex Cereal and pour it into a bowl.
2. Melt together 1 cup chocolate chips, ½ cup peanut butter and ¼ cup butter together until smooth, take it out of the microwave and stir in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
3. Pour mixture over cereal and then put the coated cereal into a big plastic bag. Add in powered sugar and shake.
4. Lay out the mixture on parchment paper and let it cool.
5. In a large bowl combine, Peanut M+M’s, Mini Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, Salted Peanuts, Caramel Kettle Corn, Candy Corn and Pretzels and cooled cereal mixture and munch away!
