Halloween Trash Candy

Halloween Trash candy: fun cereal with candy corn, pretzels and white chocolate. Easy and delicious!

I buy this fun cereal every year. Booberry, Frankenberry and Count Chocula. However, every year the same thing happens. DAY 1- all four kids eat a bowl of cereal. DAY 2- two kids eat a bowl of cereal. DAY 3- one kid eats a bowl of cereal. DAY 4- I nibble on the cereal. DAY 5- Nobody eats any cereal and it starts to get stale because all boxes are opened.

This candy is based off my white trash candy recipe. Not that it’s really a recipe. Open pantry, find leftovers, pour white chocolate over everything, eat. It’s that simple. Plus it looks so fun in a bowl.

  1. I am cracking up because I stared at all 3 of those boxes at target the other day. Now I am kicking myself for walking away. I know I would eat this all day. Yum!

  2. What a fun idea! I have never seen this cereal, I will have to keep my eyes open for it! Thanks for showing off!


  3. Funny thing is that we only buy this cereal at this time of year…must be a totally seasonal cereal, even if it is available year round. Our cereal sits and gets stale too, so I will only buy one at a time. My kids would devour this yummy treat!!! Love how you repurposed cereal:-)

  4. Oh. I’m supposed to share the treat with the kids? Too late. Haha!! I didn’t know they sold this cereal year round, guess I only look for it this time of year, and I only buy one box of each too, since they go stale quickly!

  5. i love the monster cereals!! awesome 🙂

  6. Just mouthwatering…looks so easy to prepare and delicious!

  7. This looks and sounds so yummy! If I make these, I will have to hide them from the kiddos. They would eat em all up.

    I would love for you to stop by and link up your recipe.

  8. Oh how I love me some Count Chocula. Thanks for linking up this week!
