Tips and Suggestions
Fun Idea: For fun on-the-go treats, pour 1/2 cup prepared snack mix into each of several small plastic bags. Tie closed with orange, black and/or purple ribbon.
Special Extra: For more Halloween fun, serve snack mix in clear plastic disposable gloves. If necessary, rinse any talcum powder from insides of gloves before using; dry completely. Prepare snack mix as directed, reserving candy corn. Place 2 candy corn pieces, white-tips down, in each thumb and finger section to form "nail." Fill each glove with about 1-1/4 cups of the snack mix. Tie closed with raffia. Makes 6 servings, 1 "monster hand" each.
