New Year Blessing Snack Mix

Vicki Moretta shares her ideas for a New Year's snack mix and the reason behind each ingredient. Includes printable bag tag!

Materials Needed:

  • Bugles brand corn snacks
  • Plain M&Ms brand chocolate candy
  • Peanuts
  • Small pretzel twists
  • Hershey's brand chocolate Hugs and Kisses
  • Goldfish Crackers
  • Raisins
  • Gold Foil Covered Coins
Instructions:
Use even amounts of all the ingredients listed above or mix and match as you like. In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together. You can make this mix as a family and eat while discussing each ingredient and how it relates to the new year.

If this is for a gift, make a special card with these descriptions (or print out the bag tag I provide below):

Each ingredient in this snack mix symbolizes something associated with the new year

  • Bugles Corn Snacks - Represents horns and hats used in New Year's celebrations.
  • M&Ms - Resembles colorful confetti thrown to welcome the new year.
  • Peanuts - Plant the seeds for peace in the New Year.
  • Pretzels - Arms folded in prayer for a safe and happy new year.
  • Hershey's Hugs and Kisses - The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.
  • Goldfish Crackers - For good luck in the new year, represents abundance and togetherness.
  • Raisins - Symbolizes 12 grapes eaten at midnight to bring good luck in all 12 months of the new year.
  • Gold Foil Covered Coins - For fortune and prosperity.

Another item you can use or substitute is ring-shaped cereal. A ring shape brings good luck and symbolizes coming full circle. There simply just was not enough room on the printable tag I made.

You can package the mix in zip-top sandwich bags and use this printable tag stapled to the top of the bag: FREE Printable Tag
