Trail Mix … Make Your Own!

January 22, 2010

I’m a firm believer that if there’s something for sale at the grocery store, I can probably make it at home…for a lot less!  One such item is trail mix.  Do you know how much a tiny, little bitty bag costs at our store?  Too darn much.  Besides, I can make it myself!  Here’s my trail mix recipe:

Happy Trails Trail Mix

  • 2 cups peanuts
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup dried cherries
  • 1 cup chocolate chips

Mix everything together and put it in a container.

The beautiful thing is that you probably already have most of these items in your pantry…just mix ’em up! 

You can even jazz it up with sunflower seeds, M&Ms, pretzels, etc.  Use what you have in your pantry and get funky with it.

I took some of this trail mix to work and ate half the jar.  Okay, so everything in moderation, but it tasted even better knowing that I didn’t pay an arm and leg for it!
