Almost 5 stars, but this would have been a bit too sweet. I balanced it out by using plain pretzel sticks (the thin kind) and omitting the chocolate chips. YUM YUM YUM! Everyone at work loved it.

great idea, but way too sweet.

Great mix! I varied it a bit by just using yogurt covered raisins, chocolate covered peanuts, broken up pretzel sticks, M&Ms, candy corn and cashews. I also halved the recipe since it makes SO much. Everyone at our Halloween party loved it!

This was good. I took it to a Halloween party. You can basically add anything you want to the mix.

This is good and perfect for someone with a raging sweet tooth - like me! What a treat! It really does make a TON though. It fed my Bunko group with plenty left over, so plan accordingly if you don't have a big crowd.

This was a total hit at my son's 5th grade party, as well as at the office and with all my friends. I used only salted peanuts and pretzels so it wasn't as sweet as the recipe would have been. It was perfectly sweet and salty the way I made it.

Great idea-just too sweet. I've made it several times this fall and here's the best version my family enjoys: 1 10.5 oz box of Cheeze-it Snack Mix (or homemade Chex Mix), 1 lb. or peanuts, 1 lb of chocolate candy corn, 1 cup of high quality chocolate chips or candy bar that's been chuncked, 1 cup of M & M's. If you are serving this at a party in a bowl, also add some caramel corn. This is so good, I'm looking forward to reworking it with Christmas candy!

Wow! This was awesome. Very sweet, but for someone like me, I loved it! It was served at a Bunco game with 16 women and I only had a little bit left, so obviously this was a wonderful treat!
