Spicy Caramel Corn Party Mix | Not too sweet and not too spicy. Just the right mix of both! With popcorn, pretzels, pecans and your favorite, pumpkin spice! This party mix is great for game day and holiday parties. Lady Behind The Curtain received product from Oriental Trading for this post all opinions are 100% mine.
Fill a tin and give it out as a small holiday gift! I love everything about this mix! You can add your favorite ingredients and take away what you don’t like. I make piles of this for our yearly bake sale and it’s always the first thing to go. Something fun I like to do is add some to little treat bags and hand it out to the adults that are with their little ones on Halloween. That way the parents have something to munch on instead of stealing candy out of the kids bags……but who am I kidding that will happen no matter what. 😀
