A few years ago, my daughter’s friend Allie passed out the cutest treats to her school classmates. I thought it was such a nice idea, that I saved the paper she typed that went along with the treat. I want to share this idea with you. The treat was a mixture of some of our favorite snacks housed inside a plastic Ziploc sandwich bag. The note was typed on a paper that had a cute autumn leave border.
Here’s the note, which includes the yummy recipe for this Thanksgiving treat.
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 sacrifices of the Pilgrims’ first winter; food was so scarce that settlers survived on just a few kernels of corn a day.
NUTS OR SEEDS: Promise of a future harvest, one we will reap only if seeds are planted and tended with diligence.
DRIED FRUITS: Harvest gifts from our bountiful land.
M & M’s: Memories of those who came before us to lead us into a blessed future.
HERSHEY’s KISS: The love of family and friends that sweetens our lives.
