Thanksgiving blessing mix + free printable -a sweet and salty snack mix that is perfect for gift giving or holiday snacking.
Happy November friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Halloween. Our Crazy Christmas Event starts tomorrow, but I wanted to share this Thanksgiving snack mix beforehand. It’s very similar to a candy corn trail mix, but has a nice poem to go along with it to remember some of the reasons why we celebrate Thanksgiving. We love keeping a big jar out for guests to snack on with this delicious Thanksgiving punch, or passing out to neighbors and friends.
I first saw this idea a few years ago when my friend dropped by little bags of this mix right before Thanksgiving. My kids loved it, so of course we had to make some more to snack on. I don’t know about you, but the sweet and salty combo is one of my favorites!
Thanksgiving blessing mix recipe
This recipe is so simple to make (even your kids can put it together). In fact, it would be a great job for little ones, while you’re in the kitchen baking. All you need to make it is pretzels, bugles, craisins, candy corn, peanuts and M&M’s.
My sister makes this recipe with a caramel coating which is also a yummy twist! She adds in 2 cups of Chex as well to make a Thanksgiving Chex Mix. See the recipe notes below if you want to try that version.
