Candy Corn Peanut Butter Pretzel Munch
This is one of my favorite Halloween recipes from last year.
I’m so pumped to share it again with you guys this year!
So, now that my daughter is in Kindergarten, I really have just one burning question I’d like to put out there in the universe:
WHY ARE THERE SO MANY TEACHER WORK DAYS???
Don’t get me wrong, I love my daughter. LOVE her. More than that– I actually LIKE her a lot! She’s funny and sweet and really insightful.
But… O-M-G. She is the absolute LOUDEST person on this planet. And she never, ever, ever, ever, everrrrrrrrrrrr stops talk-yelling. Like, never. And by the end of a teacher work day, my head is pounding and I’m pretty sure my ears are bleeding.
My husband walks in the door at the end of the day, and I’m all “Hey hon, could you take the baby? I’ll just be in my straight jacket and a white padded room. Oh and your daughter has about eleventy bajillion things she’d like to tell you. Mmkay?”
We have a teacher workday coming up in about 48 hours, so I’m stocking up on sugary snacks.
Don’t worry, the sugar isn’t for her (ha! As if I’d add fuel to that fire!)… it’s most definitely for me.
If you need me, I’ll be eating my feelings and hoping the the sound of crunching drowns out all the “Mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mom, mommmmmmmmm!”
If you’re looking for something to crunch on too, give this Candy Corn Peanut Butter Munch a try! Peanut butter filled pretzels and candy corn all coated in white chocolate; sweet and salty and just an all over flavor winning combo!
It’s a perfect Halloween treat to share with other victims of Teacher Work Days :)
- 12 ounces white melting candy (like Wilton's or Ghirardelli)
- 6 cups peanut butter filled pretzel nuggets
- 1 cup mellowcreme pumpkins
- 1 cup candy corn
- optional: sprinkles
Melt the white candy according to the directions on the package.
Add the pretzels to a large bowl. Pour the melted candy over top and stir to coat the pretzels well.
Add the candy corn and pumpkins, gently stir to coat.
Spread mixture out on a non-stick surface (like a silicone mat or parchment paper) and allow to cool until candy has hardened. Add sprinkles before hardened if desired.
