My parents raised me never to cop-out of stuff.
Well, sorry Mom and Dad, but this is officially a cop-out.
A big, fat, delicious cop-out. Delicious. But admittedly lazy. I’m sorry. Forgive me?
I’m about to give you all a big Captain Obvious bomb: life can get a wee bit hectic sometimes. And since 99% of you are actual parents, you know very well about the busyness of life. Kids actually need to eat relatively-nutritious meals three times a day? And need to be bathed? And carted to school, sports, activities and the like?
Duuuude. Suddenly I am appreciating my dog a lot more and I’m not even done finishing this post.
Anywho, again, 99% of you are parents. Those who aren’t parents (hi! hello?), you can keep reading, too. I’m assuming if you don’t have kids, you have coworkers and friends, too, who like to eat. And party. And munch. So basically, you just have grown up children. Ones you can drink with (how awesome).
Is this post coming off to ramble-y? Ugh, sorry. Don’t let me drink + type. ANYWAAAAAY.
When life dropkicks you + time in the face and say, you need to whip up a fun, cute, portable little treat for your kids/kids classmates/a party/coworkers/grown-up childrenfriends but you don’t have time, you need a cop-out. No, not a beer (okay, maybe one). What you really need is this Fall Harvest Munch.
It’s so easy, it’s not even really a recipe. Sorry to waste your time, but it’s only the best, most easiest non-recipe-recipe of your LIFE. It makes a big batch, keeps up to a week, and can be easily bagged up for get-togethers, parties, and the like. Can it get any bettah?
Here’s the line-up I chose:
And then you simply throw it into cutie treat sacks and call it a day.
Time for a beer?
Pumpkin-Spice Caramel Corn (found it at Target)
White Chocolate Candy Corn M&M’s
Peanut butter chips
Honey roasted peanuts
1. Pour all your desired ingredients into a bowl; gently toss to combine.
2. Pour into bags and serve. Store any leftovers airtight, up to one week.
I did coat some of my Bugles in white chocolate and sprinkled on some festive jimmies–this is totally an extra step if you want to be super festive, but if you’d rather enjoy your beer and nurse your dropkick from life, I totally get you. Sorry to get all artsy-fartsy on you for this non-recipe.
Have a happy day!
