Spooky Pumpkin Patch Halloween Trail Mix

This Halloween-themed trail mix combines sweet, salty, and savory flavors with a spooky twist. It's perfect for trick-or-treaters, Halloween parties, or just snacking on a chilly October night.


  • 2 cups of mini pumpkin-shaped marshmallows
  • 1 cup of candy corn
  • 1 cup of dark chocolate chips (or Halloween-themed chocolate chips, if available)
  • 1 cup of pretzel twists
  • 1 cup of roasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • 1 cup of dried apple slices, cut into spooky shapes (use cookie cutters)
  • 1/2 cup of candy eyeballs (edible)
  • 1/2 cup of dried cranberries or dried cherries (for a blood-red touch)
  • 1/2 cup of roasted almonds or peanuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice (for an extra seasonal kick)
  • A pinch of sea salt (optional)


  • Prepare the Ingredients: Make sure all your ingredients are ready to go. If you're using cookie cutters to create spooky shapes from dried apples, do this in advance.
  • Mix It Up: In a large mixing bowl, combine the mini pumpkin marshmallows, candy corn, dark chocolate chips, pretzel twists, roasted pumpkin seeds, dried apple slices, candy eyeballs, dried cranberries or cherries, and roasted almonds or peanuts.
  • Season It: Sprinkle the pumpkin pie spice over the mixture. If you'd like a touch of saltiness, add a pinch of sea salt as well. Toss everything together until the spices are evenly distributed.
  • Serve and Enjoy: Scoop your Spooky Pumpkin Patch Trail Mix into Halloween-themed bowls or bags for a fun and festive presentation. You can even add a few plastic spiders or other creepy-crawly decorations for an extra eerie touch.
  • Store: If you have any leftover trail mix (if there's any left!), store it in an airtight container to keep it fresh for your next Halloween gathering.
