Fabulous Fall Foods - Week 3

When the smell of Autumn is in the air and bags of candy corn begin to fill the shelves at the local supermarkets, a special harvest-time trail mix is the perfect munchy for all kinds of get-togethers.  Have the girls over to make super cute fabric pumpkins, gather the kids around the table for a rousing game of scrabble or take this mix along to your small town homecoming football game or on a hike through the deep woods to see some beautiful fall foliage.  No matter the occassion, Harvest Trail Mix is a great take along.  The candy corn ads just the right amount of Halloween color.

Harvest Trail Mix

1 - 10-1/2 oz. box of Honey Nut Corn Chex
1 - 8 oz. bag of Harvest-colored M&M's
1 - 8 oz. bag of candy corn
1 - 9 oz. package of raisins
1 - 12 oz. jar of dry-roasted peanuts

Mix all together and Enjoy! 
(Store in an airtight container)

This was a great snack Paula, Eric gave it 2 thumbs up! Besides being a yummy treat, how good does it look in your cute leaf bowls?! We might need to munch on this next time we get together for a stitch night :)

Oh s'nack! Looks yum, and I do love me those candy corns. I never, ever would have thought to use candy corn in a recipe - you and your genius ways, Paula!

I loved your comment on Grace's apron post. I added to it! xoxoxm

This is what we always have during Saturday morning! This is a hit at home.


I have a couple of recent round-up recipes printed; though with the Canadian Thanksgiving I'd got far busier than usual to have tried them.
