If you’re looking for a fun Thanksgiving favor or fall harvest party favor, this Blessing Mix is so easy to put together and tastes AMAZING!
It combines all the fall snack favorites to make a delicious harvest snack mix with a special meaning.
What is Blessing Mix?
Blessing Mix is a snack mix where each ingredient represents a blessing. It combines sweet and salty ingredients to make a delicious fall trail mix.
This is a great treat for your family to snack on around the house, but it makes a great fall harvest treat for class favors, Thanksgiving favors, or as a cute fall gift for coworkers and friends.
It’s also the perfect Thanksgiving snack to put out for your guests to munch on while they’re waiting for dinner.
How To Make Blessing Mix
Making Blessing Mix is super simple. All you have to do is combine the ingredients in a large bowl and then portion it out into bags or jars to give your friends or party guests. Blessing mix also makes an excellent Thanksgiving favor for kids and adults.
Blessing Mix Ingredients:
- Dried Fruit
- Candy Corn
- Hershey Kisses
I chose to use equal amounts of each of the items, but if you want more salty Blessing Mix, you can go lighter on the sweet elements. If you want it more on the sweet side, add a little more of the sweets.
I bought the nacho flavored Bugles and I really wouldn’t recommend that. The plain ones are much better in this recipe.
If you want to keep it simple, leave the Hershey Kisses wrapped, but you can also unwrap them to make it easier to eat.
I think traditionally the Blessing Mix recipe has dried cranberries, but not everyone loves cranberries. Feel free to use raisins, blueberries, cherries or any other dried fruit you like.
You can also add in the mallow creme pumpkins. They taste just like candy corn in the trail mix, but it just adds another fun shape to the mix.
Use any nuts or seeds that you want. My favorite to use in this Blessing Mix are cashews.
If you can find the fall themed M&Ms, I recommend using those to stay with the fall color theme.
Keep in mind that the nuts and candies will fall to the bottom because they’re heavier. So when you’re scooping this out to put into your goodie bags, be sure to scoop to the bottom to be sure to get a little bit of everything.
Thanksgiving Blessing Mix Printable
I made two different printables for the Blessing Mix.
Most of the ones I’ve seen around are for adults. I created this one with more of a fun vibe for kids or adults to enjoy.
This is the back side of the blessing mix bag toppers.
This kids Blessing Mix printable is great for fall party favors or harvest party classroom treat bags.
And I also made this one with a vintage truck that adults will enjoy. Use this Blessing Mix printable for Thanksgiving favors or Friendsgiving gifts for adults and kids.
These printable Blessing Mix tags are made to be bag toppers. I think these make your favor bags look cute because you can see all the fun ingredients through the bag without the tag getting in the way.
They each come with two sizes of Blessing Mix bag toppers. The first one fits a zipper sandwich or snack bag and the other one fits perfectly across the standard 5 inch treat bags that you can get at party stores or Dollar Tree.
All you have to do is fill you bag with Blessing Mix. Then cut out the Blessing Mix tag and fold it in half over the top of your bag and put a staple on each side to hold it in place.
Here’s the back side of the vintage truck blessing mix tag.
What does Blessing Mix represent?
BUGLES: Shaped like a cornucopia or Horn of Plenty, a symbol of our nation’s abundance.
PRETZELS: Arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by those who founded our country.
CANDY CORN: Sacrifices of the Pilgrims’ first winter. Food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn a day.
NUTS or SEEDS: Promise of a future harvest, one we will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.
DRIED FRUITS: Harvest gifts of our bountiful land.
M&Ms: Memories of those who came before us to guide us to a blessed future.
HERSHEY’S KISS: The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.
