This was in Taste of Home years ago. I have made it for Halloween every year since and sometimes at Christmas also. For Halloween, I use candy corn and Halloween M&Ms. For Christmas, I use those bell shaped candies or anything similar to red/green candy corn and Christmas red and green M&Ms. It is always requested by friends and it will be the first to go in a Bake Sale. Sweet and Salty!
