  • Combine corn snacks, cheese crackers, popcorn, and pretzel sticks in a large roasting pan.

  • Bring brown sugar, corn syrup, butter, and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook, stirring frequently, for 5 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla extract and baking soda. Pour the syrup over the snack mixture in the roasting pan; stir to coat.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, stirring to coat every 15 minutes.

  • Line a countertop with waxed paper. Spread snack mix into a single layer on top.

  • Place candy coating in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for 1 minute. Stir until smooth and place a dot of the melted candy on the back of a candy eyeball; attach to a corn snack. Repeat with remaining eyeballs.

  • Transfer snack mix to a large bowl. Stir in candy corn and peanut butter candy pieces.

Cook's Note:

Nacho cheese-flavored Bugles(R) also work.

People seemed to like it but I didn't care for the Cheez-Its. Store was out of eyeballs so I skipped that part. Read More

Delicious snack. I left out the cheezits as I was doubtful of how the cheese snacks would go with the caramel coating. Read More

I failed to buy the candy caoting and thought the sticky sauce would hold it all together. I was way wrong! Don't leave that part out! The eyeballs were left sitting in the bottom of the bowl in the end. I also left out the candy corn because I'm not a fan and that was not missed:) I gave it 5 stars because I have been asked to share the recipe! Read More
