Sparkly Sweet n Salty Trail Mix Recipe

Everybody loves trail mix but everybody does not love everything that comes in every kind of trail mix…which is why everybody does, in fact, love trail mix. You can personalize trail mix by adding your favorite foods and also omitting the ones that you hate.

Ready-made trail mixes are convenient but unfortunately, there is always something in them that I don’t like. Coconut shavings, banana chips, raisins, graham cracker chunks, etc. I usually pick around all of those ingredients if they are in my mix.

Luckily, trail mix is super easy and fun to make on your own! You can pick your favorite nuts, candies, and fruits to make your own specialized “on-the-go” snack. It also helps that the kids love it too!

Three things I love in life are: sparkles, sweets, and salty foods. When you add them all together, you can create a delicious and dazzling blend of snack food!

The Salty

  • Pistachios
  • Almonds
  • Cashews
  • Pumpkin Seeds

The Sweets

  • Crushed Life-Savers Candies
  • Peanut Butter Chips
  • Mini Dark Chocolate Nonpareils

The crushed Life-Savers really give the trail mix a pop of crystalized color and also a completely different taste that you’re used to getting in regular trail mix blends. To crush them, I simply unwrapped each Life-Saver, put them all together in a large plastic sealed baggie, and gently pounded them with a rolling pin. Be careful though because it’s easy to crush them into powder if you pound them too many times.

I used pre-salted nuts and pumpkin seeds, which always blends well with dark chocolate nonpareils. And I also used peanut butter chips because I can’t live without peanut butter. If I can put peanut butter in something, then it’s going to happen. End of story.

    1. Hi Emily,
      Looking at ESTY as an option to market a gift item I recently designed and I found your site. More importantly I found your blog “How Toxic Mold Almost Killed Me” My wife was diagnosed with RA over 25 yrs ago. The Infusion treatments have been a Blessing. However a bad reaction to her treatment last fall put her in the hospital for over 2 weeks. ICU was very scary. Since then she has been in and out of the hospital several times. She has seen many specialist and none have any answer. I have mentioned “Mold” under her bedroom but no one is concerned. I am asking the Nashville Health Dept. to test for mold. Will keep you posted. Your prayers and suggestions appreciated. My Computer skills are poor and I am not sure how to contact you. We would love to talk with you.
      Thank You,
      Chuck & Nancy Nagy
