Candy corn is one of my most beloved Halloween candies. I secretly stash a few bags as the season comes to an end so I can get my candy corn fix in during the off-season – like March!
I’ll put candy corn in pretty much anything – fudge, brownies, cake – you name it! So, as you can imagine, this Candy Corn based snack mix is a huge hit with me. Now, I know candy corn can be polarizing. Some of you love it while others hate it with a passion.

What Do I Need to Make this Halloween Snack Mix
Four easy ingredients are all you need!:
- Candy Corn or Candy Corn Mix
- Vanilla CandiQuik or Candy Coating

You can buy the popcorn pre-popped in bags in the chip aisle at your local grocery store, or pop your own at home. This microwave popcorn popper is super easy to use, comes in 14 colors, and gets amazing reviews.
I made this with pretzels and it was even more delicious so if you have some lying around, throw in a cup or so to the mix. So good!
