Twisted Sister’s Eye Candy Trail Mix

Trail mix isn’t a unique idea, but I often have ingredient issues here & got inspired by Ultimate Trail Snack Mix Ultimate Trail Snack Mix by looneytunesfan. Using ingredients I easily found at my local bargain grocery store, I put this together & we plan to give it my DH’s family in an assorted food gift Christmas basket. The packaging is what makes it fun & “candy for the eyes”. I saved clear glass bottles, pretty ones w/tight-fitting caps or corks. A cognac bottle & heart-shaped limoncello bottle from Italy come to mind as I type. I removed the labels, filled them w/the trail mix & put them in our freezer to await the holidays. Some bottles even came in boxes that will be gift-wrapped. I’ll put 1 in ea basket & make gift labels that say “This bottle is refillable. If I get it back, you’ll get it back next Christmas.” … Just 1 more way a family tradition is born.
