We really do try to eat healthy. But we indulge occasionally in some festive treats that are family traditions. I’ve made this Autumn Mix for years. It can be varied to suit your own taste. The peanuts provide some protein and the raisins some fiber. The M&M’s and Brach’s candy corn are only good for the soul. This mix performs a disappearing act before our eyes. And the mix serves a decorative purpose too because it is so colorful. Finally it can be measured and bagged, and tied with a festive ribbon to be given as a gift to teachers, friends, or coworkers. And there’s no baking required!
1 24 oz bag Brach’s Autumn Mix (has pumpkins, regular and chocolate candy corn)
1 16 oz jar lightly salted dry roasted peanuts
2 cups raisins (optional)
1 12 oz bag fall M%M’s candy pieces (plain, peanut, peanut butter, whatever your preference).
Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
