Monster Trail Mix Recipe

My husband and I love Archer Farm’s (aka Target) Monster Trail Mix.  Lately I’ve noticed that you get alot less for alot more…which is NO fun, especially in this economy!
Have you noticed how manufacturers are making the packaging smaller but charging the same or more?
Well once someone pointed it out to me I really began to notice.
So I decided why not make my own… and let me tell you… we wound up with a TON more for about the same price… it almost filled up a gallon jar!
Anyway, this Monster Trail Mix Recipe is an absolute MUST HAVE when we are trying to Survive a Roadtrip with our toddler….it’s the perfect little treat for him to snack on in the backseat.  I get these fun little monster snack containers— which Little Man just LOVES!
The Ingredients
16oz Salted Peanuts
1 Cup Raisins
1 Cup M&M’s Candy
1 Cup Peanut Butter Chips
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
2 Cups Pretzels (I added because I wanted more salty- there seemed to be enough sugar)
*really you can add whatever you like to the mix… I was thinking of adding Chex cereal, cashews, walnuts, etc.
Pour everything into a container and shake! That’s it!
