This Fall Party Mix Recipe is one of my favorite Autumn party snack foods. It only takes a couple of minutes to put together and everyone loves snacking on it.

I like to throw parties because I love to be surrounded by family and friends. For a long time though, we didn’t host a lot of parties because I couldn’t find the time or would stress over all of the details.

I started paying attention to other people who seemed to entertain effortlessly. My friend Erika throws impressive parties with no notice at all. I love all of her suggestions for what to have on hand for impromptu parties.

For pre-planned parties, I use a lot of items from my impromptu party supplies and I also try to keep things simple. I stick to easy appetizers and finger foods for the menu and Spotify party playlists for music.

Also, I try to take advantage of times of the year when I’m already decorating my home (e.g. holidays and seasonal changes such as Thanksgiving or football game days). Since Fall is my favorite season, I go a little crazy with pumpkins, gourds, and fall party food.

About This Fall Party Mix Recipe

I wanted a festive and colorful snack to fill up bowls to place around the house where guests would be mingling. For this Fall party mix recipe, I just basically threw in a combination of sweet and salty snacks I know people love.

You could also skip mixing the ingredients together and just place bowls of each snack item around your entertaining space. I like mixing them together because you get all of the fun Fall colors at every table.

When you combine them, make sure to put the popcorn and mini marshmallows in the bowl first and the candy last because as you mix them, the heavier snacks will naturally fall towards the bottom.

My favorite part of this fall appetizer is that you can add whatever you have on hand already to change the flavor and make it savory or add some more sweetness. You can add crackers, chips, pumpkin seeds, cheese balls, or even apple chips.
