Harvest snack mix

Use up that leftover candy corn (recipe calls for 1 cup) with this grab-a-handful-and-go seasonal snack mix.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups pretzel sticks
  • 1 cup mixed nuts
  • 1/2 cup sunflower kernels
  • 6 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 8 cups popped popcorn
  • 1 cup candy corn
  • 1 cup chocolate bridge mix

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the pretzels, nuts and sunflower kernels. Combine the butter, cinnamon and cloves. Drizzle a third of butter mixture over pretzel mixture; toss to coat. Transfer to a greased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 300° for 15minutes.
  2. Place popcorn in a large bowl; drizzle with remaining butter mixture and toss to coat. Stir into pretzel mixture. Bake 15minutes longer or until heated through. Cool; transfer to a large bowl. Add candy corn and bridge mix; toss to combine.

Yield: 3 quarts.
