Each year I make our trail mix to give to my coworkers. Since this year I have no coworkers and David and I are together, we made it for his employees. We love to do this for people just to say, “Hey, we were thinking about you.” It’s not too hard to make and we go to Sams Club to buy the ingredients. This year we made it a little different and added some extra chocolate. We call this mix Reindeer Droppings, but if you are interested it is made up of:
Mixed nuts (mostly cashews, almonds, peanuts but any mix will do)
Honey Roasted Peanuts
Holiday M&Ms (preferable during the season – gives it the red and green)
We mix it in a bowl, add it to some little clear bags that you get in the cake/baking isle at crafts stores, and tie it with somethign pretty — this year we got some of that wire with the little red stars on it and twisted on and curled it. They look really festive and cute! We giggled and laughed while making the holiday concoction… it really put us in the holiday spirit.
