I broke down, and had to purchase personalized M&M’s for my husband for Valentine’s Day. The process of ordering the M&M’s was too much fun with selecting any color, adding cute little sayings, and pictures. I was able to order them with Groupon one of my favorite apps which decreased the overall cost. My whole intent of ordering the M&M’s was to make him trail mix with these “melt in your mouth” American staples.
I added all his favorite fixings into the mix. Trail mix is one of his favorite snacks, and is great in between meals as a satisfying sweet and salty treat.
1 cup dried cranberries
1 1/4 cup roasted sunflower seeds, lightly salted
1 cup whole cashews, lightly salted
2 cup peanuts, lightly salted
1 cup M&M’s
1 cup Ghirardelli 60% cacao chips
1/4 cup pepita seeds
1. Mix all the ingredients into a sealable container. Lock the lid on the container & give the container a few gentle shakes to distribute all the ingredients throughout.
2. Store the trail mix in the sealed container or portion out into small sealable snack baggies for travel.
