Harvest Snack Mix - Perfect Snack for Fall Parties

Harvest Snack Mix – Fun Fall Party Snack

This fall already seems to be speeding by and before you know it, the holidays will be in full swing.  October is a busy month for many of us with visits to the pumpkin patch, fall festivals & cider squeezes. Add in Harvest or Halloween Parties at home or at school and football games on the weekends, there are plenty of opportunities to get together with friends & family. This busy season calls for being prepared & shopping ahead at the grocery store to make sure you have enough food to last you through all the get-togethers and parties that are coming up this holiday season.

In our home, it’s an extra busy month, as my husband and daughter share a birthday near the end of the month, so I’m always on the hunt for ways to save money on food costs for parties, as we always have a birthday party at home for my daughter with friends & often have a birthday party for both of them with family at home, too. Even having a party at home can get pricey with the food, decor, crafts & more, so I love to find ways to get creative with items I can find on sale so I can stock up ahead of time for parties.

Harvest Snack Mix:

Ingredients for Harvest Snack Mix

Ingredients:

*These are the ingredients I used, but use your favorite combination of salty & sweet items for your Harvest Snack Mix. The amount you use is based on personal preference & how large of a group you will be serving -I tried to use equal amounts of all the chips & cereal 

  • Waffle Cones or Sugar Cones (if you want to make it into a Cornucopia)
  • Bugles
  • Chex Mix (I used two sweet varieties, but I love mixing the sweet & salty versions together)
  • Quaker Cinnamon Life Cereal
  • Honey Nut Cheerios
  • Cap’n Crunch Peanut Butter Crunch
  • Pretzels
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Candy Corn
  • Reese’s Pieces

Additional Ideas of Mix-Ins: Craisins/Raisins, mixed nuts, white chocolate chips

Directions:

Use equal parts for your snack mix of the cereal & chips (Bugles, Pretzels, etc), depending on the size of your group & your preference.

I then used 1 cup of mini marshmallows, 1 cup of chocolate chips, 1 cup of candy corn and 1 cup of Reese’s Pieces to add to this mix (again the amount is personal preference as to how much extra sweet you want to add).

Mix all of the ingredients in a big bowl and stir gently.

Cornucopia with Fall Snack Mix

Serve in a big bowl, individualized bags for treat bags or try serving it in a “cornucopia” if it’s a Harvest or Thanksgiving theme. This is just a fun, unique way to serve the Harvest Snack Mix so that individuals can pick up their own “cornucopia” (or waffle/sugar cone) filled with as much snack mix as they prefer.

You could even dip the ends of the cone in chocolate & chocolate sprinkles to make it a bit fancier. And if you really want to make it look authentic for the harvest theme, try shaping the cone into a cornucopia at the end of the cone (see step by step directions)
