Ohhhh, my friends. It’s ALMOST here! Can’t you just feel it in the air?! The most glorious part of the entire year: the BEGINNING of the holiday season.

MY LATEST VIDEOS

And isn’t Halloween just the best holiday to start with? What better way to kick off three months filled with good eats and pretty treats than with a holiday that is 10000000% centered around candy! It’s like the perfect “gateway” holiday. It’s all fun and games and SNICKERS® bars without any of the stress that comes with the gift-giving, giant-meal-making, and extended-family-ing you’ll have to deal with in another month.

And I’ve got THE BEST Halloween recipe to share with you today. It combines my two great Halloween loves: Fun Size SNICKERS® candies from Walmart + food with spider webs on it 🕸😍.

Ingredients for SNICKERS® BAR HALLOWEEN TRIFLE

WALMART HAS EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO MAKE IT!

  • chocolate cake mix (plus ingredients on the back of the box)
  • whipped topping
  • instant pudding mix (chocolate!)
  • milk
  • Fun Size SNICKERS® candies
  • chocolate syrup

My Walmart already has the big bags of Mars Seasonal Halloween Candies right up front, and I’ll bet yours does too. Just toss a couple of bags right on into the cart next time you’re making a grocery run! Because, let’s be real– when do you NOT need a giant bag of mixed chocolate candies (and let’s not forget SKITTLES®) during the month of October?!

How to make a SNICKERS® BAR Halloween Trifle

  1. Bake a chocolate cake.
  2. Cut it into bite sized pieces once cooled.
  3. Chop SNICKERS® bars minis into quarters.
  4. Alternate layers of the candy, cake, chocolate pudding, and whipped topping in a trifle dish.

How to make the spider web on top

  1. Spread the whipped topping out evenly on top of the trifle.
  2. Draw circles (like a bullseye) with chocolate syrup on top.
  3. Drag a toothpick from the center circle outward repeatedly to create a spider-web look.
