    This sounds great, although I’m not a big fan of peanuts. I’m sure that you’re recipe would just as good
    with cashews in place of peanuts and maybe the one of those newfangled candy drops like almond joy,etc.
    Thanks for sharing I’m sure I will be making this soon

  36. shelly peterson September 7, 2012 at 1:31 am #

    Yum! My kids love trail mix. I think it will be cheaper to make myself than buy already made, that way you can add and delete what ever you want.
