When I was planning my an engagement party for our dear friends, Clint and Kelsey, I really wanted to come up with some engagement themed food. I decided to do this party mix with a “tie the knot” title and have little pretzels be the “knots.” Since it was a party celebrating the infamous RING-I had to go with Tiffany blue candy coating on the pretzels.
“Tie the Knot” Party Mix with Tiffany Blue Pretzels
I put it in little black paper bags and put a monogrammed R on each one for their new last name.
3 C corn chex
3 C wheat chex
3 C mini saltines
1 C mini pretzel twists
2 C mixed nuts, salted
6 T butter
2 T worcesteshire
2 tsp seasoned salt
3/4 tsp garlic powder
Pretzels for dipping
Blue candy coating, or white and food coloring
Blue sprinkles (optional)
In a large bowl, mix together corn chex, wheat chex, saltines, pretzels and nuts. Melt butter in a small bowl and add worcestershire, seasoned salt and garlic powder. Pour butter on the cereal mix and coat all pieces by stirring.
Spread out on a large parchment paper covered baking sheet and bake at 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt candy coating in microwave and dip pretzels in it. Place dipped pretzels on parchment paper to set. Top with sprinkles, if desired.
Once party mix and pretzels are completely cooled, mix together and serve.
These actually ended up being the perfect take home party favor.
Something else I did for the party were these cute Blackberry Buttercream “Cuptails” (cupcake cocktails):
Trying to come up with unique ideas, I did a Google search for Ring Pops used for an engagement party and to my surprise, I didn’t see any! Yippie! For the champagne toast, I put a ring on it! With these Ring Pop wine charms, the girls had a unique way to toast to the happy couple.
