Simple Candy Corn Mix

posted by Andrea | 11/19/2010

Looking for a quick and easy snack to make for your family or for your next holiday party?

Try this Simple Candy Corn Mix — I promise; you’ll love it!

It’s the perfect combination of salty and sweet…and you can add your favorite ingredients {or just whatever you have on hand!}

These are the ingredients I use:

  • 1 12 oz. bag Dark Chocolate M&M’s
  • 1 16 oz. container salted peanuts
  • 1 12 oz. bag Candy Corn
  • 1/2 bag Candy Pumpkins

Other substitutions:

  • Milk Chocolate M&M’s
  • Peanut M&M’s
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Peanut-butter Chips
  • Honey Roasted Peanuts
  • Raisins
  • Craisins
  • Small Pretzels
  • Almonds
  • Carmel Corn
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Your favorite small snack food!


  • Dump all ingredients into a large resealable bag or storage container.
  • Shake.
  • Eat.

Can you handle it?

I make this “recipe” every fall…and bring it to at least one of our Thanksgiving gatherings. It’s SO simple but I always come home with an empty bowl!

I’ll warn you though — it’s addicting!

    This would be delicious with the caramel apple candy corn, peanuts, and apple flavored jelly belly jelly beans. Maybe some mini milk duds in place of the M&M’s too. Sounds yummy!

    I make this every fall except without the pumpkins and M&M’s I just bought the corn and nuts to make another batch. You’re right, it’s very addicting. Tastes like a Payday candy bar. Now I’ve got to get some dark chocolate M&M’s. Yum!
