Trail Mix Recipe | Happy Trails to You

LAST UPDATED: Apr 25, 2019 | PUBLISHED: May 16, 2012 | By: Julie Blanner
I wanted to send Adalyn’s friends a little something for the end of the school year.  Fortunately, her “school” allows homemade treats!  I decided to make one of my favorite snack mixes, substituting butterscotch chips for peanut butter chips in case of any allergies.  I also eliminated my favorite sesame sticks, as I’m not too sure a lot of 2 year olds will enjoy them as much as I do.
Start out with a few of your favorite things.  Try to include an equal mix of sweet and salty. I included:
1 bag banana chips
1 bag pretzel sticks
1/2 box Chex cereal
1 bag M&M’s
1bag butterscotch chips
Using your hands {rather than pouring packages in}, add ingredients to large mixing bowl.  This will eliminate lots of crumbs and loose salt that just doesn’t look as pretty in clear cellophane!  Toss.
Grab a handful…see if you like the mixture and ratio.  Hey, taste testing is important!
Using clear treat bags, add mix, lay flat, remove excess air and fold the top several times.  
Add your label!

Print, cut, add your child’s name and label!
