However, it is also a classic autumn snack mix that was new to me up until last year when I had my first taste of this iconic fall treat. Because of this reason I began thinking that maybe I wasn’t the only person in the world who had never eaten this delicious combination, so I decided it was my duty to share this recipe with all of you just in case you haven’t tried it yet as well.
Last weekend we made a pretty large grocery shopping trip, so when we went Sunday we decided to focus only on the essentials. Somehow though we headed down the Halloween candy aisle while on our way to pick up a gallon of milk. That’s when it hit me that I most definitely needed a bag of candy corn and a jar of salty peanuts (essentials, right?) for a pairing that tastes just like a Payday candy bar.
A bag of peanut m&m’s happened to catch my eye though as well, and before I knew it those were tossed in my cart as well. That combination of salty and sweet had me anticipating going home and shaking up a batch so we could snack all afternoon.
