Holiday Trail Mix

This one is cheap when buy store brands and on sale with coupons, and is great for the holidays. Easy for children to make, you can put together a big bowl and then divide it into pint-size canning jars to give as gifts. This can also be sent to school in a lunchbox, or taken to work for a snack.


white chocolate covered pretzels (homemade may be cheaper)

cheap Christmas candies

dried cranberries (maybe even yogurt covered)

dried mixed berries

slivered almonds

  • Just mix everything together and place around in bowls at your next celebration.

Warmest Wishes!


Note: I know some of these ingredients the healthiest, but I don’t think it is necessarily bad to treat yourself once-in-a-while. You just don’t want to make a habit of it. Many people on my Christmas list might not welcome my new ‘health food’ recipes, but they like things like this.

  1. I love your ideas, I too do very similar to you. On the frozen soup/stew starter my Aunt taught me that and it is the best soup. I do that when I make any spagetti sauce as we are a big italian family. Theres always a little bit leftover after a meal and I dump it in my container meat and all. This christmas I’m going to make lasagna with it but you can always just warm it up when you get enough for another meal. All mixed together Wow!
