THANKSGIVING BLESSINGS MIX

Here is a cute Thanksgiving blend that is yummy and the little saying at the end is sweet. I love these kind of things to share and spread around with your friends and family. 


Here is the PDF so you can print the recipe out. For some reason the graphics got bigger then they are, I tried to fix them, but to no avail. Oh well next time perhaps it will go better. :)



  





THANKSGIVING BLESSINGS MIX


2 cups Bugles brand corn snacks
2 cups small pretzels
1 cup candy corn
1 cup dried fruit bits or raisins
1 cup peanuts or sunflower seeds
1 cup M&Ms chocolate candy
16 Hershey's chocolate kisses

In a large bowl, gently mix all ingredients except Hershey's Kisses. Place 1/3 to 1/2 cup Blessing Mix in small cellophane treat bags. Add one Hershey's Kiss to each bag. Close bag with chenille stem or twist-tie.



I made a card stock attachment that reads:

THANKSGIVING BLESSINGS MIX

Bugles: Shaped like a cornucopia or Horn of Plenty, a symbol of our abundance.
Pretzels: Arms folded in prayer.
Candy Corn: Hardships of the Pilgrim's first winter. Food was so scarce that the settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn per day.
Nut or Seeds: Promise of a future harvest, one will reap only if seeds are planted and tended to with diligence.
Dried Fruits/Raisin : Harvest gifts of our bountiful land.
M&Ms: Memories of those who came before us to guide us to a blessed future.
Hershey's Kiss: The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.
Isn't this a wonderful recipe? Are you counting your blessings?

Have a nice Saturday!
