We bought one of those large trail mix containers the other day. It was good and didn't last long. The only problem I had with it was that it had a lot of sugar in it. We're talking M and Ms, mini chocolate chips AND butterscotch chips. So I decided to make my own fall trail mix. I toasted some coconut flakes and almond slices.
I ended up toasting the whole bag because we eat it by the handful around here. I used half of the bag for the trail mix and about two cups of sliced almonds.
I added a cup of white chocolate M and Ms. Along with a cup of autumn color M and Ms.
I also added a couple handfuls of Spanish peanuts.
It made a lot. I divided it up and put it in snack bags so we can snack and go. It's a little bit healthier than the other stuff we bought. I wanted to add some raisins but it looks like we ran out. I still thought it was pretty tasty.
