What is it about trail mix that I love so much? Maybe the fact that I don’t have to “cook” anything. Or maybe because it makes me happy to see such lonely items get mixed up into a spectacular array of goodness. Whatever it is I just can’t seem to stop making them and so I bring to you… Patriotic Trail Mix! It’s sure to be a hit for 4th of July or anytime!
My girls like to take the marshmallows and other candies out to make a flag on their napkins…. cute!
It’s not too late to make this for the 4th! Just a little cutting and mixing required! My kind of treat!
