Yummy fall treat

This simple treat is a family tradition, I don't remember a Halloween growing up where there wasn't a big glass pumpkin full of this. It is the perfect combination of sweet and salty, soft and crunchy. It is kind of snicker-ish-y tasting, and you don't even miss the chocolate. I dare you to sit in front of a bowl of this and not eat every last corn and grain of salt. (P.S. Target does not carry Spanish peanuts, I already checked)

Now add to the candy corn and nuts a cup of recess pieces and mix it with 12 cups of popcorn. Melt a pound of white chocolate and pour it over that mixture. Now I dare you not to eat any of that. :)

I just wish I had Mom's glass pumpkin jar to put them in!

Thank you for the reminder! I literally read this, then went to Von's and bought some. I'm putting them in clear bags tied with Halloween ribbon for visiting teaching gifts this week.

Cause I know everyone is DYING to know about my visiting teaching gifts.

If it tastes anything like a Snickers then I have to try it...I am a sucker for the Snickers :)

I love the mix of sweet and salty... popcorn with m&m's, pretzels in chocolate, you name it, sooooo yummy. I'll have to try this.

I have to say, I have tried Ruthy's little concoction... very, very good, but totally addicting :)
