This is a cinch to make with pretty much whatever your favorite sweet and salty fall snacks are. The only caveat is that if you use any dried fruit in your custom mix, add your pretzels and bugles at the last minute or the fruit will make them soft. I used yogurt covered raisins in my mix, and because the raisins were covered, there wasn’t an issue with moisture.

Here are the ingredients I used, but you are welcome to choose your favorite candies, and I’ll give you some other options that work well too.

I’ve estimated some of the amounts, and you feel free to as well depending on how much you want to make.
