As the weather cools down, and the spooky season of Halloween approaches, one of the best snacks in the world is eaten in bulk: Caramel Corn! This Caramel Corn Snack Mix is easy to make and delicious!
Caramel Corn is an ingenious idea– it’s the perfect mix of sweet and salty. Popcorn is naturally salty, and caramel is sweet!

Snack mixes are currently all the rage. They’re great for an afternoon treat!
Our snack mix is made from popcorn, rice cereal, pretzels, and pecans. Then we make a caramel topping– with a secret ingredient!
