This Monster Muddy Buddies recipe is chock full of movie snack favorites! Ghoulish chocolatey M&M’s, white chocolate pretzels, yogurt covered raisins, mini white chocolate Oreos and classic candy corn are mixed with candy-coated cereal and buttery popcorn to make a super-rich, sweet and salty movie mix to serve on family Fright Night!
Combine candy melts, peanut butter, and butter (or just candy melts) in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on high for 1 minute then stir to combine. Continue to microwave and stir in 20-second increments until the candy is completely melted and smooth. Stir in the salt and vanilla and mix well.
Pour cereal into a large bowl then add candy melt mixture. Gently toss together until all of the cereal is evenly coated in the chocolate.
Add candy-coated cereal to a large zip-top bag followed by the powdered sugar. Seal the bag and gently shake, making sure to thoroughly coat all of the cereal in the sugar. Pour onto the prepared baking sheet and allow to cool for 10 minutes before mixing with other ingredients. Store in an airtight container until ready to serve.
