This Thanksgiving snack mix is a delightful combination of some favorite fall treats. The two printables that I have included also tell your guests just what is in the harvest blessing mix and what each ingredient stands for.
Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for blessings. For most of us, it also means surrounding ourselves with one or more of the symbols of Thanksgiving.
This fun snack mix is designed just for the holiday, with each little treat symbolizing a different part of what makes Thanksgiving the great holiday that it is.
For another fun Thanksgiving dessert idea, check out these candy corn turkey cupcakes. They are also a delight and fun to make.

This snack mix is so easy to put together. There is no baking or cooking at all. Everything is just combined in a large bowl, mixed and then served. What could be easier than that? Gather these things together:
- Candy corn
- Small twist pretzels
- Candy pumpkins
- Dried fruit
- Cashews, Almonds and pumpkin seeds
and then add in a bag of Hershey kisses. I used the ones 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 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!
