Favorite Fall Mix
I make this sweet treat every Fall and I love it.
Mix together equal parts of candy corn, plain M&Ms and dry-roasted peanuts. Serve and snarf.
Now, before you rush to the store, color is important. This mix is beautiful when Fall-colored M&Ms are used: browns, orange, reds, yellows, even green. Sometimes you can find special "Autumn" M&Ms or even Halloween-colored M&Ms on the shelves at the store. But it's often cheaper to buy just a regular bag of M&Ms and make your children pick out (and eat) all of the blue ones.
This looks lovely when displayed in a glass container. Oh, and when you take 1 piece of candy corn, one peanut and 2 M&Ms from the mix and eat them at the same time, it tastes exactly like a Snickers candy bar. Really!
