I made some cake pops for our “pumpkin potluck” and was left with a bowl of white candy coating from the ghosts, and a bowl of orange from the pumpkins. What to do? I saw a box of chex and a bag of reeses pieces on the counter and decided to have a little experiment. I added some peanuts and pretzels for a little salty counterpart and presto! It’s Monster Munch! (I’m not sure on the name, but it was super yummy anyway!) I did it in two batches, half with the white and half with the orange, then mixed together after set. The powdered sugar helped them stay seperate more. I served it in a big pumpkin bucket with a little shovel and some bags. Let’s just say it was a HIT! With both kids and adults, so make this for your little monsters… or big. Either way, they’ll enjoy it!
