Harvest Blessing Mix

A friend of mine shared this with me, and I thought it would be a perfect favor for Thanksgiving this year (which, although I'm not hosting, I am planning). With one batch, I made 4 big bags (to share with some ladies I visit in the neighborhood) and 21 small bags (for Thanksgiving dinner guests). It really does make a lot. Now, there's no recipe, cause you just add as much of each thing as you'd like. We wanted it colorful, but not too much candy, so we started with pretzel.

(Sorry about the quality of the pictures. My camera will not take good colored pictures in my house at night. The color of my walls reflects on everything. But ignoring the color, you can see what it looks like.)

As you can see, the mix is very versatile. You could change candy corn to popcorn, or goldfish to swedish fish. You can choose whichever dried fruit and nut or seed you'd like (or add several, like I did here), and add as much of each item as you think looks good (or will taste good). You do have to use the twisted pretzels (to represent prayer) and I can't think of any substitution for bugels, but they're easy to find. I just love that it's fast and easy.

You can make your own card to tie on, or print the one pictured:
