2 Ingredient Halloween/Fall Snack Mix


Need a quick snack mix for a Halloween party or a last minute teacher's gift?  Here's the easiest snack mix ever.  If you like Payday candy bars, you will love this mix.

Just mix equal parts, salted peanuts and candy corn.  I used the autumn candy mix because it looked more festive.  The plain candy corn might be more proportionate with the peanuts.  Use good peanuts.  The cheap variety were very greasy.  
Michael's had a package of cute tags marked down to $1.99.

Our little autumn stickers came from Zazzle.   A great place to get adorable personalized stickers, etc. for a good price.















The little jar is $2 at Wal Mart.  It took 2 cups each of candy and nuts to fill.  

Happy Halloween!

Oh, my husband would LOVE this. He just loves candy corn AND peanuts.
It's so simple but sounds perfectly delicious.

And I stopped back by to tell you that I went to your snow post that you linked. Loved it and could tell what fun you had! You are obviously a gal after my own heart, running through the house in excitement and making snow angels. Me too!

We got the best snow that I can recall here in these parts this past February. It was one cold winter this past year, wasn't it?

I think that's why the Georgia flowers have been so beautiful this year.

Yum! What a great idea. I am going to see if I can find these goodies in the store where I found Libbie's Pumpkin! You guys have the yummiest things over there.

Best wishes and Happy Halloween!

I'm finally (almost) unpacked and (almost) back to normal so I can catch up in blogland! I love your mix. In fact, I made a similar one and ate it since it's not something my husband will eat. How bad can it be? Peanuts are healthy--aren't they?

I have made a pledge to get myself to Goodwill. Would you believe that I've never been? We have a fairly new one less than a mile away and I've made donations but haven't gone inside. That afghan is amazing and the price is, well, priceless!

We have a prediction for snow tomorrow!!!!!

Best,
Bonnie
