    Wow!! This looks amazing. I cannot wait to make these with my children one day. Do you like the silpat lined baking sheet? Saturday I made some Chicken Tortilla Soup in my crock-pot and used a liner for the first time. This made clean up so easy, all I did was throw it away. Thank you for your post. Have a great day.

    You have some of the cutest ideas! I loved this one. I usually make a mix sort of like this at Christmas but with M&Ms. However, the pumpkins and candy corn just appeal to me like nothing else right now. Really great idea! Will have to try soon!

    As a veteran of “texting teens” it all comes down to knowing your kids and who they “hang” with (and confiscating phones periodically to check!!) Happy to say so far so good!!!

    Made these today for my daughter’s kindergarten party tomorrow. I used M&M’s instead of peanuts since she doesn’t like peanuts and it’s really good. I would have preferred the peanuts myself, but that’s ok. Thanks for this!!

    DeAnne S says:

    I made this for halloween following the recipe as directed. Easter is tomorrow and I decided to make this recipe again however; rather then using Brach’s harvest mix I used a easter blend of this which has pastel, blues, greens, pinks and yellow shaped candies. Looks terrific, I’m calling it rabbit food. 🙂 Thank you for a simple, yet terrific treat. Everyone loves this when I make it. 🙂

    Yum!! I think I’ll make these now!! haha! Those little pumpkin candies are out already at Walgreens! 🙂
