girls' weekend fall goodie bags + fall candy mix recipe

this past weekend was & always is the very best weekend. the gals on my mom's side of the family travel to eureka springs for a weekend of craft fair shopping & most importantly, laughing. 

i can't wait to share our girls' war eagle weekend, but today i thought i'd share details on the goodie bags i gifted to my aunt, cousins & mom.

a few weeks ago, my friend, melissa, presented her "worley fall mix" to a group of girls at a fun play date. it's a yummy & colorful mix of pretzels, candy corn, m&m's & peanuts. friends, it's addicting! i just had to make little bags of the fall mix for girls' weekend! 
warning: package your fall mix immediately or you might just eat the entire bowl. 

i also purchased these cute little "happy halloween" signs from the target $1 bin for their goodie bags. target, you've done it again. 

i got the cute kraft boxes at hobby lobby & stuffed them with tissue paper & the treats. i tied the boxes with ribbon & added a cute tag with their initials.

it was the perfect little treat for the weekend & it cost me under $3 each!  

my sweet friend, melissa, said i could share her family fall mix with you today so below you'll find the recipe!  

- 1 bag of pretzels (we used the gluten free pretzels from aldi's! delicious!)
- 2 med. bags or 1 lg. bag of candy corn
- 1 bag of m&m's
- 1 jar of unsalted & roasted peanuts

quantities of ingredients don't matter too much... it's really up to your family's preference!

1. pour all of the ingredients in a giant bowl
2. stir all of the ingredients together until it is well mixed
3. eat & enjoy!

chef's notes: melissa swears that "one pretzel, two peanuts, three m&m's & one candy corn" is the perfect combination & tastes just like a snickers bar! yum!

These are so cute! I love all of your little goodie bags and gifts for people. Do you spend a lot of time planning them out, or go on a whim with what you see that's cute and fun?
