    LizP's Note:

    I used to post on a message board that had a very active recipe forum. One of the members posted this recipe. I tweaked it to my families taste and package amounts that were available in our grocery store. It is the perfect blend of sweet and salty. You can add or subtract ingredients to your liking. For example, if I am making this for one of my kids class parties, I leave out the peanuts in case of allergies. I have changed it to a Christmas party mix by using the Holiday M&M's and substituting mini marshamallows for the Candy Corn. It makes a TON, but it disappears very quickly. I hope it becomes your family's tradition, like it has ours.
