Christmas Blessing Snack Mix

Materials Needed:
2 cups Bugles brand corn snacks
2 cups small pretzel twists
1 cup red hots
1 cup peanuts
1 cup M&Ms brand chocolate candy (red and green)
16 Hershey's brand chocolate kisses
In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together. You can make this mix as a family and eat while discussing each ingredient and how it relates to Christmas.
If this is for a gift, make a special card with these descriptions (or print out the bag tag I provide below):
Each ingredient in this snack mix symbolizes something associated with the Harvest Season (Thanksgiving)
Bugles Corn Snacks - Shaped like a trumpet to remind us of the angels we have heard on high.
Pretzels - Arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by those who founded our country.
Red Hots - To symbolize the holly berries decorating our mantel tops.
Peanuts - Plant the seeds for peace on Earth.
M&Ms - Memories of those who came before us to lead us into a blessed future.
Hershey's Kisses - The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.
