Hi there! One of my favorite candy bars is the humble Payday. It’s salty and sweet, and I happen to crave both of these things in equal and enormous quantities. Plus, I can weigh the fat and calories against the protein in all of those peanuts as justification for eating a candy bar for lunch. Ha! But candy corn. That’s another story. I’ve never been a big fan. (Don’t hate.) Enter this Halloween snack mix that has totally changed my tune.
What does this have to do with Payday candy bars?
Well, have you heard that if you mix candy corn with cocktail peanuts you get a Payday? It’s totally true! Not to mention totally addictive, by the way.
To that end, there’s no exact proportion of candy corn to peanuts that makes this Halloween snack mix a hit. I just threw a few handfuls of both in a bowl and stirred. The fun part, though, is finding the right proportion of candy corn to peanuts in each handful that’s right for you. I, personally, prefer about 5 or 6 peanuts for every one candy corn. The kids? They eat about 22 candy corns for every peanut. So basically, after one afternoon of having this snack mix on the counter, we were left with a bowl of peanuts.
Put this easy-peasy snack mix on the counter as you count down the days ’till Halloween, and you’ll have some very happy little monsters.
