Thanksgiving Snack Mix

This makes a great table favor at Thanksgiving!

2 c. Bugles corn snacks
2 c. "tiny twists" pretzels
1 c. candy corn or corn nuts
1 c. dried fruit
1 c. salted or dry roasted peanuts

Mix all ingredients together and place desired amount in cellophane bags tied with ribbon or raffia and attach a copy of the following:

Every ingredient in this mix is symbolic:
Bugles represent a cornucopia, the horn of plenty.
Pretzels represent hands folded in thanks and prayer.
Candy corn reminds us that one winter, the Pilgrims were each allotted only 5 kernels of corn per day because food was so scarce.
Dried fruit reminds us that Thanksgiving is the celebration of the harvest.
Peanuts represent the potential of a bountiful harvest for the next year, if seeds are planted and well tended.
Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good;
His love endures forever. Psalm 106:1
