HALLOWEEN SNACK MIX

You may know this recipe by another name. I’ve seen it called Candy Corn Trash, White Trash, Reindeer Chow (for Christmas), or Mardi Gras Snack Mix. Basically, they’re all the same recipe except various candy is included to correspond with the holidays. Basically, you can substitute the candy corn for M&Ms or your favorite candy.
