The perfect fall snack

I don’t know about you but I love FALL!  It’s my favorite season and the start of all things good like apple picking, costume shopping, halloween, Thanksgiving day, and yes Christmas is coming too!

Below is one of my yearly recipes that comes out each September and stays around until the last few sale bags of Candy Corn are snapped up just after Halloween.  It’s simple and quick to make.  It’s a great snack around the house, the perfect traveling companion, or leave some in a BIG bowl and watch party attenders huddle around the table to munch.


The basic ingredients


The ingredients are pretty simple

  • One bag of Candy Corn
  • One can of peanuts (lightly slated or dry roasted)
  • One bag of Fall colored M&M’s
  • One bag of Fall colored M&M Peanut’s

You can mix and match additional ingredients of your choice such as

  • Carmel Popcorn
  • Cashews
  • Almonds
  • Pistachios
  • White chocolate chips
  • Reese’s Pieces
  • Raisins
  • Small pretzels



Candy Corn….It only comes out once a year


Start adding one ingredient at a time into a large bowl or 2 gallon plastic bag



Salty and Sweet the perfection combination


Mix with your hands or a large spoon to blend ingredients around


Doesn’t that just look delicious!


Share in a large bowl or find a small festive one to spread the joy



Nibble away…..


It’s the perfect snack.  A little sweet, a little salty, and a whole lot of savory goodness.
