Hello again, Pinky Pals! It’s Nicole from 365(ish) Days of Pinterest and I’m back this month to celebrate the coming of fall! YAY! It’s my favorite season because of the cooling weather, crisp air, apples, pumpkins, warm cinnamon, boots, jeans, rich colors and the anticipation of the coming holidays.

I recently went on a road trip to Arizona for a blogging conference and I wanted to make a snack mix to bring along with us. I had looked at the store for some packaged mixes, but nothing had exactly what I wanted.

So I figured I’d just make my own. 🙂 Now, don’t let the presence of candy corn turn you away. I’m not a huge fan of candy corn, but with this combination of flavors, it just works. Trust me.

(Try it, and then if you hate it, feel free to send it to me. 😉

Side note – if you love pumpkin, be sure to try this my friend Cindy’s Pumpkin Roll Recipe! It is delicious!

Grab a big bowl and fill it up for Halloween parties, Harvest Festivals, Thanksgiving or any other excuse you’ve got to party this fall. It’s easy to double the batch- just bake on two cookie sheets.

The M&M’s aren’t a requirement and they can get a little pricey, but they do add a delicious layer of butterscotch flavor. But feel free to switch them out for something else if you’re trying to keep the price down for a larger batch or if you cannot find the Butterscotch version (just use plain). Happy Fall!
