Seriously you guys, this snack mix is ah-mazing!! All you have to do is make the “bones” then throw all the other ingredients together and BAM, delicious. The bones are made out of pretzels dipped in vanilla candy coating and mixed with yogurt raisins (ghost poop), dried cranberries (dried blood) and buncha crunch (chocolate covered brains.)

This is really a great mix because it highlights all the flavors. Salty pretzels, sweet chocolate, tart cranberries and my favorite yogurt raisins. UGH, this is such a great combo and so fun!

Ingredients
  • 12 oz vanilla almond bark
  • 8 oz yogurt raisins
  • 30-40 pretzel sticks
  • 5 oz dried cranberries
  • 9 oz buncha crunch
Instructions
  1. Make the bones ahead of time by melting the almond bark to the directions on the bag. Dip pretzels into the bark and lay them to dry on a sheet tray lined with wax paper or a silicone mat.
  2. Taking the left over melted almond bark, place it in a pastry bag with a fine tip. Add the joints of the bones both ends of the pretzel. Place in fridge for about 10 minutes to make sure the almond bark hardens completely.
  3. Mix the remaining ingredients in a bowl. Add in the pretzel bones and very gently mix. Place mix into baggies or serve as is, enjoy!
