Quick, easy, customizable, and delicious!
If you are looking for a Halloween treat that is both festive and delicious, Monster Munch is for you!
You know how sometimes people make themed treats that are cute for the holiday, but don't actually taste that great? Ya, that is not Monster Munch.
I make a huge batch of this and its gone within just a few days.
You can make this with just a couple ingredients so its basic enough to please everyone, or customize it with all your family's favorite snacks!
Making this is super easy, super fast, and it's perfect for get togethers.
Put some Monster Munch in cute themed cellophane bags and give them out as Halloween favors at your kiddos school or at your own Halloween party!
Ingredients. The beauty of this recipe is how easy it is to add what you like to it.
Melted almond bark is the main sweet ingredient here, then you just add what you like!
For our family, we do buttered popcorn (adds a wonderful salty buttery depth to the sweetness) Rice Chex, Stick pretzels, peanut butter m&m's, and whatever sprinkles etc. we feel like at the time!
Here are some other mix-in ideas!
•Chocolate Chips or peanut butter chips
•Peanuts (or your other favorite nuts)
•Dried Cranberries or raisins (or other dried fruit)
•Broken up ritz or saltines
•Your favorite cereal
•Your favorite candy bar broken up
.....Make it savory or sweet, the options are literally endless!
This recipe is super simple. Prepare a large baking pan or mat with parchment or wax paper, and set aside.
Melt almond bark according to the directions on the package.
Mix in all your favorite goodies. How much you add of each item is entirely up to you and your taste buds. I use popcorn and Chex as a base. I use the full bag of popcorn, and almost the full box of Chex .
I LOVE buttered popcorn with the sweetness of the almond bark!
Pretzels are a favorite of my boys!
Chex are the perfect neutral crunch!
Prior to adding your chocolate, empty your mix onto the parchment paper and spread it out evenly.
*Chase away pre-teen food consumers who will eat it all before it hits the pan.
Because we melted the bark, I wait to add anything that can melt until I've mixed everything else together and laid it out of the parchment paper.
We added peanut butter m&m's here (because its the right thing to do). We also added orange sprinkles because it's Halloween!
If you really want to go themed you can get black and orange candy melts and drizzle them over your mix once you've laid it out to cool. You can also add tiny candy corn pumpkins for that extra fall color too!
Monster Munch doesn't take long to cool, so you can start snacking in no time! Break it all into pieces and serve up in a cute themed bucket or container.
Put whatever leftovers you have in an airtight container.....ours lasted 48 hours....pre-teen food consumer....
We made our mix with Halloween in mind this time around, but this recipe is perfect for any gathering. So easy to add favorites for Christmas, and Valentines, and birthday parties etc. It's a total crowd pleaser at all functions!
