You know fall has finally arrived when the candy corn and candy pumpkins hit the stores. Fall can’t get here fast enough for me and even though it’s 90-plus degrees today in East Texas, it’s fall in my kitchen. I made a yummy sweet & salty fall snack mix for our family to munch on and I made an extra large batch to give to friends and neighbors. I thought I would share the recipe with you today along with this free printable gift tag that I used to attach to the treats:
If you’re looking for a quick and easy fall treat, it doesn’t get any easier than this!
Of course, you can adjust this mix any way that you like. I even thought about drizzling white chocolate over it as well (oh my!). I came up with this mix because I have a serious thing about mixing carmel corn with Cheddar Chex Mix. It gets even better with candy corn, candy pumpkins and salty peanuts and I am in sweet and salty heaven.
So this is what I used for my mix:
I used one bag of carmel corn (10 oz.), one bag of Cheddar Chex Party Mix (8.75 oz.), one container of salted peanuts (4.5 oz.), one bag of candy corn (1 lb) and one bag of candy pumpkins. I just tossed it all together and that was it! It’s addicting!
If you want to mix up an extra batch and give treat bags to friends, I’m also sharing the free printable “Happy Fall” gift tag. I filled ziploc bags to make larger batches (for neighbors) that I placed in these fun chevron treat boxes that I picked up at Hobby Lobby:
for smaller batches, I filled cellophane bags and then attached the gift tag:

You have to have Adobe Reader installed on your computer to print the tags. If you do not have it, you can download it for free here.
These little tags would work not just for this mix but for any fall treats or baked goodies. All you have to do is cut them out, punch a hole for ribbon and there is plenty of room on the back if you want to write a little note too!

Thanks for hanging out with me today and I’ll be back on Friday with another DIY project from my craft room revamp.
