Are you ready to see another fun idea for my Halloween pumpkin carving party? As you know I’ve teamed up with Friskies and Pet Smart to share party ideas featuring that adorable little Grumpy Cat. You can also see the previous projects for diy Halloween floating eyeballs and ghost drink stirrers.
While I’ve been posting some pretty generic ideas for this party so far, today I’m focusing on the Grumpy Cat or Black Cat theme and sharing my “Kitty Kibble” Halloween party snack mix. This is actually the first thing that came to mind when I was brain storming ideas for this party, and it was sparked by one of my favorite cereals.
When I was in college I went through a period where I was obsessed with Cracklin’ Oat Bran cereal, and I always had the thought that it looked like dry cat food! Somehow that vision has always stuck with me and when I found out I was working on a cat-centered party I knew I was going to make that idea work for me. I decided to put together a snack mix that has the look of kitty kibble, but tastes like sweet and salty heaven.
This “Kitty Kibble” snack mix is a great idea for a Black Cat themed Halloween party!
Dry cat kibble is made up of a mix of shapes and colors, and this combination of ingredients mimics that in a fantastic way! It’s made up of cereal, nuts, and pretzels so it’s actually a fairly nutritious snack. The sweet and salty mix is balanced, and adults will enjoy it as well as kids.
Halloween Party Snack Mix “Kitty Kibble”
Just mix 1 cup of each:
- Multi Grain Cheerios, Peanut Butter flavor
- Cap’n Crunch
- Cracklin’ Oat Bran
- Dry Roasted Peanuts
- Pretzel Goldfish
Don’t you love how it comes together and looks like dry cat food?! And the little fish shapes are so perfect!
This mix is a great party favor to take home. I filled small tins, which reminded me of the tin cans that cat food comes in. You can also fill a large bowl and let guests fill up their own tin or bag.
Of course you can make a bigger batch to suit your needs too.
