Bulk Snacks: Home Made Trail Mix

Here is another family favorite: Home Made Trail Mix. We have made this time and time again, and it always works out cheaper and easier than buying it pre-made. Plus it’s reasonably healthy as far as snacks go and you can make it with whatever suits your fancy.

Rather than buying trail mix premade at wal-mart for 6 bucks a pound I decided to make my own. Not only because I think I can make it cheaper, but also better and without those NASTY raisins. I hate raisins, always have. I eat them when I have to but YUCK, LOL.

Anyway, here is what I made mine with: Pecans/Almonds/Cashews/Peanuts/Choc Chips

I can’t find my receipt to be sure, it comes out to about 4 dollars a pound off the top of my head. But… it meets my requirements… no raisins. I used chocolate chips rather than m/m’s since they were cheaper, but beware they will melt easier.

Hi, I'm Shane, aka Hungry Dad. I'm as busy as everyone these days and my two boys just add to that. I hate when we have to eat out and love to come home and have a home cooked meal with the family after a rough day. But who has the time, right? Well, with a lot of trial and error we found a bunch of great, easy to make recipes that can be made in bulk and freeze well. This means we can have home cookin' in about the same time as making a box of mac and cheese. Convenient and yummy!
