Thanksgiving Day Cornucopia Snack Mix

Whether you are planning a treat for a Thanksgiving Class Party or a family party, the kids will have fun making their own cornucopias!  Filling their cornucopia with some super nutritious food, rather than candy, and adding a tag with one thing they are grateful for will just be ‘icing on the cake’.

The first step you could let the kids help with, or have them pre-made.  We used Waffle cones and dipped the edge in melted chocolate.  Then, we rolled the wet chocolate in coconut, and crushed nuts.  We chilled the cones in the fridge in order for the chocolate to firm  up.

Then, we set out colorful snack cups and treat cups for our snack mix.  We used nuts and seeds that were not only the fall colors we were looking for, but also dense in heart healthy nutrients:

Then, we found some printable tags (that were really cupcake toppers, but they are super adorable!!)  This is when the kids can write what they are grateful for.  Erica wrote: I am thankful for Honey (My dog)

We used some cone shaped bags found at the craft store to enclose all of it, so the kids could take it home, or save for later.
