My kid’s teacher asked for ‘non-sweet treats’ for a Halloween party. A search of Allrecipes showed there were very few like that, so I took some party mix recipes and made my own. Pretzel sticks = wooden stakes. Animal-shaped crackers = wild beasts. Toasted rice cereal = tombstones.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 ½ teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 7 cups crisp rice cereal squares (such as Rice Chex®)
  • 1 cup roasted pumpkin seed kernels
  • 1 cup pretzel sticks
  • 1 cup goldfish crackers

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Place butter in a 9x13-inch baking dish; melt in oven while it preheats.
  2. 2 Stir Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, and seasoned salt into melted butter. Gradually stir rice cereal squares, pumpkin seeds, pretzel sticks, and goldfish crackers into butter mixture until evenly coated.
  3. 3 Bake in the preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, until crisp and fragrant, about 1 hour. Transfer party mix to paper towel-lined plates to cool.

  2. This one is perfect you can add any variety of things to this & it's always great. I have added 2 kinds of Chex Kix Cheerios & the flavor is always excellent it's very addicting!
  3. I agree with the others not enough oil to coat the product. I have made it more like the chex mix with 2-3 of their flavors (versus only rice). I do like the added goldfish and pumpkin seeds. Instead of butter though (I have done both) I like to add melted bacon grease. It gives - Read more ...
  4. There wasn't enough seasoning or butter to get everything all covered. I think this could have been good had there been more butter/seasoning.
  5. Halloween Party Mix Haiku: "The ratio's off. (There's too much rice cereal.) Flavor's kinda 'meh.'") I love snack mixes making them mixing them sniggling bites of them so I was happy to try a new one out but this one disappointed me mostly b/c there was so much Rice Chex and the flavor didn't really - Read more ...
