CANDY CORN TRAIL MIX by NancyC                                 Candy Corn Trail Mix @ NancyC

Makes 15 cups

  • 4 cups Golden Grahams OR Vanilla or Honey Nut Chex cereal
  • 2 1/2 cups bite-size pretzel twists (like Rold Gold Tiny Twists)
  • 2 cups lightly salted dry roasted peanuts or cocktail peanuts
  • 3/4 cup dark or golden raisins
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup roasted sunflower kernels
  • 2 cups candy corn
  • 2 cups M&M’s plain chocolate candy (or substitute 2 cups chocolate chips–semi-sweet, white, dark, or milk chocolate)

In a large bowl, add all ingredients and mix together by tossing with a large spoon. Serve in the bowl or package into treat bags. If you want to make a healthier autumn trail mix, you can omit the candy corn and M&M’s and substitute 2 cups of dark chocolate chips.

    I made something very similar the other day for my some of my work colleagues! We are always munching on something on the hospital’s behavioral health unit, so I came up with a new mix. I used chocolate Cheerios for the cereal and blueberries for the raisins, since I’m allergic to them-and if the maker can’t sample the goodies, why bother??? 😉
