An easy delicious and simple fall harvest snack mix treat that everyone will love. Perfect for a fall gathering.
As the weather begins to cool, I start thinking about backyard bon-fires. This treat has that right combination of sweet and salty. You will serve it to your guests and expect to find an empty bowl. It will be gone in no time!
You may have seen something similar called Scarecrow Crunch or Scarecrow Crunch Munch. Whatever you want to call it, one thing it will be called is “yummy!”
This treat is a great snack to serve hosting football games, fall and Halloween parties. Let’s not for and Thanksgiving too!
You can serve it in individual bags decorated for fall. I love to have them sitting in a bowl ready for small hands to grab to enjoy.Jump to Recipe
Going to a fall get together?
Bring along this tasty snack treat. This recipe is easy that you can make it within a matter of minutes.
Does your neighborhood do “Boo-ed” gifts? Add a jar of this delicious and fall harvest snack mix in with your gifts. You can add a homemade gift tag and ribbon.
How to make:
You can either dump the ingredients in a large mixing bowl or use a tray. I will add the cereal, pretzels and bugles on a foiled covered baking sheet. Then add the nuts and Reeses pieces. You will mix the ingredients all together.
Melt the white chocolate chips with Crisco Shortening in either a double boiler or microwave.
Poor the white chocolate over the snack mix and gently toss. You can use your hands to toss the mixture with the white chocolate once it cools to the touch.
You can substitute any cereal, nuts or candies. Other candy options would be candy corn and M&Ms.
Store in an air tight container to keep it crunchy.

I make it for Jim. He is munching on it now as I type. He has the sweet tooth in our family.
I love this treat, Tammy! I’m going to make it for Brooke! She will love it! Such a great idea to put in the jar as a gift! Thanks for sharing! 🧡
You will have to send me a photo of Brooke with her snack treat. I am making this for my neighbors. At Christmas time, red and green M&Ms are a great substitute for the season.

Tammy, I just had some scarecrow snack mix from Target and it was pretty much this same thing…and it was amazing! Thanks so much for this recipe. I’ll definitely be making it soon. Pinned!
Isn’t it good? You can make it with different cereals and candies. I see where candy corn is added. My family does not like candy corn. I will put cashews or walnuts in it sometimes.

This sounds so good. I am just afraid if I make it, I will eat it all. I have zero willpower when it comes to food.
Wendy, I hear you!
