    Default Autumn Festival Mix Gift


    Autumn Festival Mix Gift
    Posted by : jazzdoll_2000

    Liss Note: To make a festive 4th of July Gift use red, white & blue Jelly beans in layers.
    Makes a great hostess gift! In a jar tied with a pretty ribbon, or a festive baggie with a topper -spice up any season or holiday, just change the color and flavor of the Jelly Belly beans!


    1 Tbs. sugar
    1 tsp. ground cinnamon
    2 cups prepared air-popped popcorn (microwave variety works great)
    1 cup bite-size crispy wheat squares (such as Wheat Chex cereal)
    1/2 cup dried cranberries
    2 1/2 cups Jelly Belly beans (mix Tangerine, A&W Root Beer & lemon
    Flavors)
    2 cups fat-free pretzels
    non stick cooking spray


    In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. In large bowl, combine popcorn, cereal, and cranberries. Spray popcorn mixture lightly for 4-5 seconds with non-stick cooking spray. Quickly toss with sugar mixture.

    (This helps the sugar mixture stick to the popcorn). Stir in Jelly Belly beans and pretzels. Store in covered container


    Halloween/Fall: Licorice; Orange Juice, Island Punch and Green Apple jelly beans

    Thanksgiving: Cranberry, Grandma's Pumpkin Pie and Hot Cider jelly beans

    Christmas: Cinnamon, Coconut and Green Apple jelly beans

    New Year's Eve: Chocolate Pudding, Champagne Punch and Coconut jelly beans

    This would also be really cute at a baby shower. You could buy some cheap baby bottles & fill each of them with the mixture (with pink jelly beans for a girl or blue jelly beans for a boy) - and give these as part gifts!
