Fall Munchy Snack Mix - A New Twist On Your Fall Favorites


      Since yesterday was the first day of fall, I figured we better celebrate!  This snack mix is a perfect way to enjoy the flavors and colors of fall.  It would be fun to put on your desk at work to share with your coworkers.  It would be great to set out for people to munch on during the football game.  I little baggy would be a special treat in your child's lunch box!  No matter how you decide to serve it, it won't take long before it is gone.  It is like a magnet that keeps drawing your hand in for another bite!



     Look at all those goodies, how could it not be wonderful?!  I thought it would be fun to mix a couple of my fall favorites.  Jenny's Smacky Delicious Mix and hillbilly hash seemed like they would be a perfect pair.   While we were at it, why not add in some Reese's Pieces too?  I mean really, you might as well!  A few pumpkins and some s'mores candy corn?  Sure!

    While we are on the topic, does everyone call candy corn and peanuts hillbilly hash or is that a regional thing?  If not hillbilly hash, what do you call it?



    There really isn't much of a recipe here, but I had to share it anyway.  I also had to share the results for fear the whole bowl my disappear before my very eyes!

Ingredients:

1 recipe Jenny's Smacky Delicious Mix (I made it without the peanuts for this)

    1. It is, that is for sure. I had to quickly package it up and get it ready to go to its intended recipients or it might not have made it through the afternoon!

    1. It's a fun name! It seems I have heard it called a few other things, but I can't recall any of them. 'Tis the season though, so I am sure my memory will be refreshed soon!

  8. I've got a mix similar to this sitting in a glass canister on my kitchen counter. It tastes great and makes a pretty fall display. I need to add some Reese's Pieces to mine! I've never heard candy corn and peanuts called hillbilly trash. I don't think I've heard a name for it, but that's a funny one.

    1. It is a funny name! I always think it is fun to see what the regional names/slang for things are. So far it seems like I'm the only one that knows it by that name, but I promise I am not the one that came up with it!

  9. What a great snack! I think this would be perfect for our next family movie night. My son likes to close all the curtains, turn up the speakers, and play "movie theater." This snack mix will be a great surprise in place of popcorn. Thanks for sharing at Inspiration Thursday!

    1. I love munchy foods like this! The only problem is it is hard to keep track of how much you've had. I hope you are having a great week!
