Blessing Mix

2 cups Bugles original flavor snacks
2 cups small pretzels
1 cup candy corn
1 cup dried fruit or raisins
1 cup peanuts
1 cup M&Ms plain chocolate candy
Hershey milk chocolate candy kisses

In a large bowl mix everything together.

BUGLES: Each is shaped as a Cornucopia or Horn of
Plenty to remind us of our ancestors and our heritage
and that our lives are filled with blessings.
PRETZELS: They represent our arms folded in prayer
to give thanks.
CANDY CORN: Sacrifices of the Pilgrims' first winter. Food
was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels
of corn a day.
RAISINS: Thanksgiving in the celebration of the
harvest from the field and trees. Preserve harvest
for times of need and share.
PEANUTS: Seeds represent future hope and promise,
the potential of a bounteous harvest for the next season
if they are planted and well tended.
M&Ms: Memories of those who came before us to guide
us to a blessed future
HERSHEY KISSES: The love of family and friends that
sweetens our lives.
