Thanksgiving Blessing Mix

Author Notes: This is a variation of a chex snack mix. I found the cute little "poem" at the St. Augustine's holiday craft bazaar but the lady did not know who the author was. I adapted their sweet treat to a salty snack--great for watching the football games while the turkey bastes or after dinner when the cards get dealt out--it's a nice accompianment to that turkey/stuffing/cranberry relish dagwood of a sandwich you are planning to make!

Thanksgiving Blessing Mix

The Bugles are a symbol of the Cornucopia, a horn of plenty.

The Pretzels represent arms folded in thanks and prayer.

The Candy Corn reminds us that during the first winter the pilgrims were allowed only a few kernels of corn per day because food was scarce.

The Fruit is a reminder that Thanksgiving is the celebration of the harvest.

The Peanuts represent seeds, the potential of the bounteous harvest of the next season if they are planted and well-tended.


Serves: a crowd

  1. 1 box of Bugles 1 small bag of pretzels 4 oz. of candy corn 10 oz. of peanuts or mixed nuts 1/2 c. dried craisins 1 c. oil or 1 stick of melted butter 2 t. each of cumin, salt, celery salt, garlic powder and onion powder 2 t. worchestershire sauce Mix all dry ingredients to combine. Whisk together oil and spices. Pour over mix and stir. Bake on low 250 for 20 min.
  2. Tip: The "dried fruit" I chose to use was craisins but in the original package I bought , they had used "gummy" fruits, which some kids may prefer.
