Halloween snacks are meant to be munched by the handful, which is why we love this crunchy, spicy, savory-sweet snack mix. Whole-grain air-popped popcorn is an excellent “filler,” adding volume to the mix without upping more sodium- and calorie-heavy ingredients. We love the pungent kick and crunch of wasabi peas; you can leave them out or substitute unsalted roasted or smoked almonds.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 275°F.

Step 2

Combine first 8 ingredients (through salt) in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Fold in rice square and bran flake cereals. Spread cereal mixture on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake at 275°F for 25 to 30 minutes or until cereal mixture is tacky but not moist. Remove pan from oven; cool 30 minutes.

Step 3

Place cereal mixture in a large bowl. Add popcorn, pretzels, wasabi peas, and coconut; stir to combine.
