Jack-O-Lantern Jumble

Jack-O-Lantern Jumble

Let me just say it upfront and get it out of the way.  Jack-O-Lantern Jumble is ADDICTING!  It has that classic sweet-and-salty combination that makes it impossible to stop after the first mouthful.  

We make Jack-O-Lantern Jumble every October and November when candy corn abounds in the stores.  We make it double-batches at a time.  We make it because we can’t NOT make it, and because we love it so darned much.  It is so-o good.

Find the biggest bowl in your cupboard and make a double-batch today!
