THE MIX. {A delicious summer treat}

CANDY MIX 4

My friend Tami dubbed this “The Mix,” a few years ago.  It didn’t need a cute name like Puppy Chow or Nuts & Bolts to attract people to it….just calling it what it was…..The Mix…..was good enough.  Kind of like Madonna, Prince, or Cher.  Your kids will love this one and it’s something they can help make.  Plus, it’s bright and colorful and just looks like a sunny summer day.

You need four ingredients.

CANDY MIX

Plain M & M’s, Cocktail Peanuts, Colored Dinner Mints (GFS usually carries them), and cut up Strawberry Twizzlers (don’t use the pre made licorice nibs–they’re not as good in this–at all).  Use equal parts of all four ingredients.

Mix all together.

And then just try not to eat it all in one sitting.
