and then add in a bag of Hershey kisses. I used the ones with almonds, since I used almonds in my mix.Add the Hershey kisses to the bowl

The wonderful thing about this harvest blessing mix is that each ingredient stands for something related to Thanksgiving.  Some are symbolic – like the twist pretzel representing arms folded in prayer, or the Hershey Kisses symbolizing the love of family and friends.

Others are more factual, like the dried fruit, nuts and seeds representing the harvest of past and future years.  My favorites ingredients are the little bugles that are shaped like a Thanksgiving Cornucopia

One of the nice things about this Thanksgiving snack mix is that it is so easy to make, you can let the kids help, or do it all themselves. Even the littlest youngsters can take part!Mixing up the trail mix
