Halloween Treat Monster Mix
3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup butter
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups small pretzel twists
4 cups roasted peanuts
6 cups Corn Chex cereal
3 cups powdered sugar
1 11 oz. package candy corn
1 11 oz. package Mellocream Pumpkins
1 16 oz. package Reeses's Pieces
1 12 oz. package orange and black gumdrops
1 12 oz. package jelly pumpkins
Melt the chocolate chips, butter, and peanut butter in the microwave, stirring every minute or so until smooth.
Pour over the Rice Chex and stir until all the cereal is well-coated. Measure the powdered sugar in a large paper bag. Pour the mixture into the bag and fold the top down several times. Shake the bag for several minutes so that the chocolate pieces are thoroughly coated. Transfer the mixture to two or three large baking sheets to dry for an hour or two. Mix with the packages of Halloween candy. Store in an airtight container.
