Yesterday the hubby and I went to the horse races … not just any old race, but The Breeders’ Cup. We like to think of it as the Kentucky Derby of the west 😉 We’ve never been to the Kentucky Derby … maybe someday! It was very exciting and entertaining … horses, hats, celebrities, food, placing wagers and unfortunately loosing 😦
The loosing part brings me to this winner …
I’m calling it the Pay Day Party Mix! This creation came about thanks to Beth at Hungry Happenings … it was because of her Sweet and Salty Halloween Bark! You see, I was telling the hubby and Son #3 that I wanted to make the bark … they decided that we should make this mix today and save the bark for another time. I gave in … again 😉
Now … I have to admit that the guys created a pretty good combo … it does taste like a PayDay candy bar! I don’t know why … I’ve never eaten candy corn and peanuts together. It makes sense … the whole salty sweet thing and all.
CANDY CORN, PEANUT & CARAMEL MIX
- 2 cups candy corn (11 ounce bag)
- 2-1/2 cups salted roasted peanuts
- 3/4 cup Caramel Bits
Place all ingredients in bowl and mix. Store in air tight container.
This is a winning mouthful … 1 candy corn, 2 peanuts and 1 caramel bit!
