Blessing Mix

Even though this isn't really a recipe, I got it from a friend and thought I'd pass it on. Not only is it a tasty, colorful mix, it also is something fun for Thanksgiving!

*The seeds are shelled sunflower seeds

Blessing Mix

Bugles – Shaped like a cornucopia or Horn of Plenty, a symbol of our nation’s abundance.

Pretzels- Arms folded in prayer, a freedom sought by those who founded our country.

Candy Corn – The sacrifice of the Pilgrim’s first winter. Food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few grains of corn.

Seeds – The promise of a future harvest one will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.

M&M’s – Memories of those who came before us to guide us to a blessed future.

Hershey Kiss – The love of family that sweetens our lives.
