Halloween pleasures

Unknown fact: I love, love, love candy corn. I only ever run across it on Halloween so I look forward to this annual guilty pleasure of mine every October. This year we'll be at a friend's wedding over Halloween so I'll have to make a pit stop at their local CVS for a stash.

But for those of you who will be sticking close to home this year, this recipe for -- of all things -- a gluten-free trail mix for October 31st (actually) sounds awesome. Enjoy!

Gluten-free “Trash” Mix Recipe

PRINT Recipe


  • Candy corn
  • Gluten-free pretzels
  • Caramel popcorn [homemade or purchased] – my recipe coming soon!
  • Banana chips
  • Chocolate covered raisins
  • Dried mango
  • Dried pineapple
  • Dried cherries
  • Sour worm-shaped gummy candy
  • Chocolate covered sunflower seeds [Trader Joes]


  • Paper Bag(s) – fold sides down twice
  • Leaves – from the yard or the flowers sitting on your table
  • Ribbon, twine or yarn


Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and then divide amongst the paper bags. Tie ribbon/twine/yarn around the bag and add leaves for decoration.
