Ingredients Used to Make this Halloween Favorite Treat

The Munsters Family Monster Munch is the perfect addition for any Halloween party or horror movie night. With the salty pretzels and sweet homemade puppy chow, this combination is the tastiest Halloween themed recipe.

What really makes this recipe pop is the clean ingredients used within the homemade puppy chow. The dark chocolate covered pretzels add the perfect salty and sweet crunch. Unreal dark chocolate covered peanuts not only add a delicious texture, but a fun color to the mix as well.

But as always, remember moderation is key when it comes to sweets. I always encourage scooping some of the Monster Munch into a small bowl to help with portion control. Mindful and intuitive eating is key to living a sustainable, healthy lifestyle!

How to Incorporate the Monster Munch at Your Party

Not only is this sweet treat fun to make, it’s also the perfect addition to any Halloween themed party! We added this snack to our Halloween themed charcuterie board, pairing it with the Black Magic Witches Brew Sangria. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, these Halloween themed recipes were to die for. 👻 I highly recommend giving them a try!

Feel free to also double or triple the Monster Munch recipe if you’re throwing a large party. The homemade puppy chow does make a good amount, so it’ll be easy to simply combine the remaining two ingredients into a bowl to serve more. This recipe also makes a great party favor for guests who attended your party. Send each guest home with a jar of the Monster Munch for them to enjoy!
