Festive Fall Snack Mix

Raise your hand if you love candy corn.

Yep.  Me, too.

For the most part I do a pretty good job of eating all-natural foods, but leave it to Halloween – the candy holiday of the year – to come up with a little sugar bomb called candy corn to throw me off my game.  Lucky for me I’m on what I call an “80/20 plan.” Eighty percent of the time I feed my belly real food, and the other 20% of the time my brain can have whatever it thinks it needs.

Here’s what my brain has been craving lately:

To make, get yourself a huge bowl and pour in the following:

1 bag of original candy corn
1 bag of chocolate candy corn
1 bag of peanut M&Ms
1 bag of plain M&Ms
1 jar of salted peanuts
1 bag of salted pretzels

Stir it up and enjoy!

Actually, first you should put on your elastic pants – or your Barney Halloween costume – and then you can stir it up and enjoy.

    Just packed myself a little peanut and candy corn snack to take to work today! Love these additions though. Am trying to think of a treat to take to my nurses next month when I deliver…this might be the ticket!

    Mmmmmmm I love peanuts and candy corn, although I have resisted so far this year! Instead, I’ve been stuffing my face with the candy corn M&M’s – TO.DIE.FOR.

    I plan on being the Michelin man for Halloween #andtheremainderoftheyear

    @Nicole: I hope you enjoyed your snack, and good luck with your delivery next month!

    @Allison: Really?? It’s hard to believe that candy corn M&m’s are tasty! Hmmm…I may have to investigate this further.
