Party Sized Trail Mix Recipe

We go through a lot of trail mix in our house; probably because we like to hike and it's an easy snack to pack for hitting the trails.  We used to purchase pre-made trail mix but I realized I could make a double batch for just about the same price.  It's so easy and tasty!

2 cups Whole Almonds
1 9.6 ounce bag caramel M&M's
1 9.6 ounce bag peanut butter M&M's
10 ounces raisins
1 16 ounce jar honey roasted peanuts
1 lb whole cashews (or pieces)
16 ounces cocktail peanuts

I just dump all the ingredients in a giant bowl and mix together!  Soo easy!

And I love that I can mix up the ingredients anytime I want.  We've tried craisins with dark and white chocolate baking chips.

We've mixed up the flavor of M&M's too and haven't found one yet that we don't like.

I divide the giant batch into two zippered storage bags and pop them in the pantry.  I've toyed with dividing them up into single serving sized containers but haven't yet.

I do have to warn you this is not Weight Watcher's friendly but it really does hit the spot when you want something salty and sweet at the same time.
