How to Make Your Own Trail Mix

Do you love trail mix? Have you ever considered making your own? Now is the time! Making your own trail mix is super easy, and it’s better than purchasing pre-made versions at the grocery store. When you make your own trail mix, you can change the ratio of ingredients to include more of your favorites, and have better control over what goes into it to begin with.
Here is what you will need to make your own trail mix:
1 cup roasted peanuts
1 cup chopped cashews (or almonds)
1 cup raisins
1 cup vegan chocolate
Here is what you need to do with the ingredients: Simply mix it all in a container. There’s your trail mix! You can store it in an air-tight container for a couple of weeks, if needed, or use it right away. Trail mix makes a great snack to take on hikes, put in the kids’ lunch, or carry with you for when you need a quick pick-me-up.
One of the great things about trail mix is that you can put whatever you want in it. Some optional ingredients include shredded coconut, popcorn, chocolate-covered pretzels, sunflower seeds, dried fruit, Chex cereal, etc. Just make sure you have a combination of sweet and salty, and that you have various textures in the mix. If you like more peanuts, add more. If you like fewer almonds, scale back on those. Try different combinations until you find one that you can’t resist!
At Premium Chocolatiers, we specialize in providing top-of-the-line vegan chocolates. Our products do not contain any milk derivitives, gelatin, eggs, or any other animal products. If you make your own trail mix once, you will never want to buy the pre-made store options again! Contains Nuts.
