Candy Corn Trail Mix

Children can make these easily. They make great lunch-box add-ins, good trick-or-treat gift to hand out to the children you know, or even great place markers for guests at a Thanksgiving table.

Candy Corn Trail Mix

1/2 cup candy corn

1 cup dried cranberries

1/2 cup nuts, any kind

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

  1. 1 mix everything together in a large bowl.


Note: I know the candy corn is not healthy, but I don’t think it is necessarily bad to treat yourself once-in-a-while. You just don’t want to make a habit of it.
