Easy To Make and Fun To Eat Goldfish Halloween Snack Mix

Monday, October 3, 2016

When it comes to snacks, nothing beats a hearty and robust snack mix. The best part is that it's as fun to make as it is to eat, and is perfect for little hands and creative little minds.

We've been making Goldfish snack mix for years, and it never gets old...even for the adults. It's a fun way to use your creativity to create a custom snack that consists of everything you love including Goldfish crackers!

Not that you need a reason or a special occasion to make Goldfish snack mix, but here are a few good ones:
  • After school snack
  • Family movie night
  • Sleepover activity
  • Goody bags for a birthday party
  • Snack for a road trip or trip to the beach or park
  • A treat to cheer up a friend

For our Goldfish snack mix, we used the following ingredients:
  • Goldfish crackers (Cheddar and Colors varieties)
  • Popcorn
  • Mini pretzels
  • Peanuts
  • Small chocolate candies (fall-themed)
  • Candy corn

You could also use:
  • Baking morsels (white chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter, or mini)
  • Nuts (almonds, cashews, etc.)
  • Cereal (oats or chex)
We didn't measure any of the ingredients precisely. Part of the fun is grabbing a handful here and a handful there and combining everything as you please until you have the perfect combination.

The idea behind the Goldfish snack mix is to have fun with it. Make a big batch and transfer it to snack-sized bags for later. Or let everyone mix up their own in individual bowls. Whatever you make and however you make it, munching on the final product is the best part!


Preparing meals and fun snacks are great ways to bring your family together and make lasting memories. Of course, a way to preserve those memories is to snap a photo of the family making memories. Submit a stop-animation video HERE for a chance to win $5,000.
