Amy’s Fall Mix – a fAvOrItE of ours!!!

Since today is “Recipe Day” in the blogosphere, I’m thrilled to bring back a FAVORITE, easy recipe to share with you. It’s from an old “Frappuccino Fun with Amy” post – and, btw, I’m still hoping to convince her to start writing here again soon! She has great ideas~ and this is one of her “classics”. Anyone who knows Amy, knows her Fall Mix, and her giving heart.

She writes: “One of my love languages is giving. I enjoy bringing unexpected treats to un-expecting people – whether it’s my children’s teachers, neighbors, or friends. I don’t know anyone that doesn’t like to receive a gift “for no reason at all”. Last week, I made one of my favorite snack mixes and I’d like to share it with you, it’s always a big hit at this time of year! I like to call it – “FALL MIX”.”

Amy’s Fall Mix

Just mix the ingredients together in a big bowl:

1-2 Bags Candy Corn or Autumn Mix

1 Bag Indulgent Trail Mix (WalMart)

1-2 Bags M & M’s (Halloween Colors, Plain or Peanut)
[Jennifer here: If I can’t find those, I just pull the blue M&Ms out of the “regular” bag.]

1 Can Toffee Peanuts (Dollar General Store or DG Market)

1 Can Mix Nuts or Peanuts (Salted)

1 Box Sugar Babies

This mix is also great because there are really no exact measurements or ingredients involved. For example, if you don’t like sugar babies, just leave them out! My only word of caution…don’t add cheerios or pretzels to this mix, they get soggy.

For around $15 you can be a blessing to many people this season! Be aware that this mix can become addictive….”

She’s right about that… It’s both a blessing to others and very, very addictive! 🙂

Happy Fall, Y’all!
