Munchin’ Monster Mash Party Mix

1 (10 1/2 oz.) pkg. Ritz® miniature peanut butter filled crackers
1 (11oz.) pkg. small pretzel twists
1 cup dry roasted peanuts
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
2 Tbs. vanilla
1 tsp. baking soda
1 (18 1/2 oz.) pkg. candy corn
1 (10 oz.) pkg. M&M's (plain)

Preheat oven to 250° F.

Combine peanut butter filled Ritz bitz, pretzels and peanuts and place in a large greased baking pan; set aside.

In saucepan combine butter, sugar and corn syrup and bring to a boil over medium heat; boil for 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and stir in vanilla and baking soda. Mixture will foam up.

Pour over combined pretzel mixture and stir until coated.

Bake for 45 minutes, stirring well every 10 minutes.

After baking pour out onto wax paper lined cookies sheets and break mixture apart while still warm.

When cooled completely toss with candies.

Store in Tupperware® or other airtight container.

Note: This makes about 16 cups of party mix. Looks cute when placed in festive Fall or Halloween bags and tied with raffia or ribbon.
