Fallfest Snack Mix

Fall has arrived early in middle Tennessee. Temperatures have dropped into the 70s during the days, and the semester is well underway. I know the college students in our ministry are hard at work on projects and papers, so I crafted a little fall-inspired snack mix for their late night sweet-and-salty snack cravings. I made a ginormous batch, but to bring it down to mere mortal proportions, here’s what I used:

Fallfest Snack Mix

  • 3 C Reese’s Puffs cereal
  • 2 C candy corn
  • 2 C mellow-creme pumpkins
  • 2 C Ritz pretzel rounds
  • 1 1/2 C Cheez-Its
  • 1 1/2 C Pepper Jack Cheez-Its
  • 1 C chocolate chunks
  • 1 C dried pineapple chunks
  • 1/2 C dried cherries

Mix together, and store in air tight container. Ratio of ingredients does not really matter, as long as there’s a good mix of sweet, salty, chewy, and crunchy. I packaged it up in treat bags to give out in Sunday school tomorrow. . . . and of course I kept some back for us to try. You know, for “quality control” purposes. 😉
