Oh Fall, we are so happy you are here! Bring on your yummy pies and sweaters, family gatherings and chilly weather. We are ready! This will be the 3rd year celebrating fall in our house and I get so tickled thinking about the all of the memories we’ve had over the last two years. One that stands out during this time is what its like at our house on Halloween night. 🙂
The hubs and I have made it a tradition on Halloween to buy the biggest, ugliest, leftover pumpkins at the nearest store and have a pumpkin carving contest in our front yard. It’s incredibly fun. Last year’s final pumpkins were a sight to behold….I’ll spare you the photos. Then we gather all the pumpkin seeds from our carving session (because I’m obsessed) and get them prepped for baking. YUMMY!
After our pumpkin carving festivities, we like to light our favorite fall candles, grab our snacks and cuddle up on the couch for the season’s best movie, Hocus Pocus. This has got to be one of my all time favorite childhood movies! Then we wait for little ones to ring our doorbell and race each other to the door to handout candy. So much fun! I should have written down some of the things these kiddos say when you open the door. They keep us laughing all night!
This year, I’m sharing one of our newest obsessions that I like to call the ultimate fall popcorn snack mix. It’s not just any ole’ popcorn mix either…it’s got a secret ingredient. It is oh so delicious and keeps us sugared up for Halloween night to keep up with those little ones! I’ll show you how to make it – it’s so simple and the whole family with love it!
So here’s the deal. There are a ton of snack mixes in the world, but none are going to beat this one…do you know why? Because it’s got Angie’s Boom Chicka Pop popcorn in it and nothing gets better than that! Am I right? I can’t keep my hands out of the popcorn. This is my secret ingredient. (Muahhhahaha!)
Even better…it comes in a variety of flavors. Here are some of my favorites. (P.S. This is not a sponsored post. I just love it that much!)
So what I did was take my all-time favorite popcorn, Angie’s Boom Chicka Pop, and mixed in some candy corn and peanut M&Ms…wallah! You’ve got the ultimate popcorn snack mix. I promise you your friends and family will wonder why its so stinking good! (shhh…its this awesome popcorn).
Happy fall snacking my friends!
