Wow! I can't believe that we have already hit Friday Faves #72! It is kind of cool to like so many things! But, honestly, before today, I can't say that I have always been a big fan of trail mix. I saw on my calendar of unusual holidays that today is National Trail Mix Day. When I saw that, I thought ugh! What is there to say about that? To me, the best part of trail mix is the M&Ms! It always bugs me that when you get to the bottom of the bag of trail mix, all that is left are some crumbs of cereal and nuts. So, I got to thinking, what if I make a personalized trail mix that I will really love? And no, it can't be just the bag of M&Ms. It has to have other healthy stuff in it as well. Well, I began to poll my family to find out what their favorite ingredients are in trail mix and then I made our own personalized recipe for it! I will share it with you later in this post! Then, if our faves are your faves you can just use my recipe. If not, you can take your own poll make your own personalized trail mix recipe.
After you make the mix, it is nice to package it up to either take hiking or to give away, or just to keep it fresh for snacking. It won't last long. Maddy and I have been munching on it all day. That serves 12 thing is just a guideline. But, here are some ways to package it before you eat it all.
So, Happy National Trail Mix Day! That is our personalized mix. What would yours look like? Let us know your favorite ingredients!
