Festive Fall Snack Mix Recipe

This recipe originated from one of the ladies from my church growing up, Becky.  She helped throw a “Cooking Show Themed” wedding shower for me way back when…This recipe has become a fall tradition ever since.  Only now I DOUBLE the recipe for our “crowd”.

If you are a fan of the sweet and salty combination, then this will become an instant winner!

Festive Fall Snack Mix

Ingredients:

~ 1 Box of Ritz Mini Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers

~ 1 Small Box of Sunmaid Raisins

~ 1 Bag of Candy Corn

~ 1 Bag of Plain M&M;’s

~ 1 Jar of Lightly Salted Dry Roasted Peanuts

Mix together in a large bowl.  (The small ingredients tend to sink to the bottom, so give them a little boost to the top.) CHOW DOWN!  Nom! Nom! Nom!

I like it because it’s not a complete sugar-loaded-wasted-calorie-snack.  You get a little sweet, but some protein and fiber while you’re at it!

It looks even more festive if you have a fall container like this apple one to keep it fresh in:

Speaking of a TREAT….Congratulations to Emily, She’s the winner of the Faith Baby Onesie or Tee of Her Choice.  Emily has a little “pumpkin” in the oven, so what a perfect prize!

    Yum! I'm always reminded of caramel dipped apples in the fall. My mom used to make them every year.

    We are loving us some Pumpkin Bread in the King home this fall! The babies could eat a whole loaf if I let them!

    I will have to try your "mix".

    Oh, what a great and different snack mix! Thanks for sharing it!
    I LOVE anything with pumpkin in it for the fall, and my dad's homemade fudge, and right now I am looking forward to carving jack o' laterns tomorrow and roasting pumpking seeds – yummmm!
