    Default American Blessings Mix

    American Blessings Mix

    2 cups Bugles brand corn snacks
    2 cups small pretzels
    1 cup candy corn
    1 cup dried fruit bits or raisins
    1 cup peanuts or sunflower seeds
    1 cup M&Ms chocolate candy
    16 Hershey's chocolate kisses

    In a large bowl, gently mix all ingredients except Hershey's Kisses. Place 1/3 to 1/2 cup Blessing Mix in small cellophane treat bags. Add one Hershey's Kiss to each bag. Close bag with chenille stem or twist-tie.

    Bugles: Shaped like a cornucopia or Horn of Plenty, a symbol of our Nation's abundance.

    Pretzels: Arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by the founders of our country.

    Candy Corn: Sacrifices of the Pilgrim's first winter. Food was so scarce that the settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn per day.

    Nut or Seeds: Promise of a future harvest, one will reap only if seeds are planted and tended to with diligence.

    Dried Fruits: Harvest gifts of our bountiful land.

    M&Ms: Memories of those who came before us to guide us to a blessed future.

    Hershey's Kiss: The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.

    What a great idea for co-workers and to place one at each family member's seat at Thanksgiving.
