This Thanksgiving snack mix is a delightful combination of some favorite fall treats. The two printables that I have included also tell your guests what is in the harvest blessing mix and the blessing that each ingredient stands for.
I think it’s so neat to have a treat for your guests that is both delicious and also has a meaning behind each ingredient.
There’s so many reasons to be thankful this fall, and this Thanksgiving snack mix is a reminder of the many blessings at this time of the year.

This thankful snack mix is designed specifically for the holiday. Each of the treats symbolize different reasons why Thanksgiving is the great holiday that it is.

This Thanksgiving party mix is so easy to put together. There is no baking or cooking at all. Everything is combined in a large bowl, mixed and then served.
What could be easier than that? Gather these items together:
- Candy corn
- Small twist pretzels
- Candy pumpkins
- Dried fruit
- Cashews, Almonds and pumpkin seeds
- A bag of Hershey kisses. I used the kisses with almonds, since I used almonds in my mix.
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 to represent 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 that represent the harvest of past and future years.
One of the nice things about this cornucopia snack mix is that it is so easy to make. You can let the kids help, or they can do it all themselves.
Even the littlest youngsters can take part!
