I'm not sure who discovered the combination of candy corn and peanuts but hands down it's my favorite. It's like you are eating a Payday candy bar. Paydays remind me of James's Granny. She always had one on her end table and till this day, every time I see or eat one, I think of her. There is something about the mixture of the sweet candy corns and salty peanuts that just make my taste buds happy. Give a dish of this mix plus a hot coffee and I'm pretty much set for the Fall. The only problem is once I start snacking, I can't stop.
I wanted to gift the girls at my table something that was 100% Fall and this candy corn mix does the trick. Simply mix equal parts candy corn and peanuts. To fill these wide mouth half pint Mason jars, I used a half cup each. Speaking of Mason jars, they are my go to way to gift anything. Trail mix, body scrubs, hot chocolate kits, you name it, I put it in a Mason jar. I scored this set from a garage sale this Summer. I've been holding on to them, hoping to discover a use for them this Fall.
Prepping my jars took next to no effort thanks to this spray gel. The first step was the annoying task of getting those darn price stickers off. I never understand why they have to be on the glass because it’s such a pain to get them off. Fortunately I picked up some Goo Gone Spray Gel at Target, in the aisle with the cleaning supplies, and the stickers came off so easily! Please do not use the GooGone on silk, leather, suede, rubber, faux stainless steel, drywall, unfinished wood surfaces or unsealed stone.
I used Fall construction paper to cover the lid, adding a bit of a fun touch to a typically boring container. Using the printable below, I attached the "this may sound CORNY but I'm NUTS about you!" with black and white striped washy tape and I had a personalized, edible Fall gift for my girlfriends.
