Every summer we go and spend time on our houseboat down at Lake Powell. And each trip we like to bring down yummy treats to share with our guests we host on these trips. Many years ago as I was trying to come up with different goodies to make I had made a batch of the traditional trail mix with peanuts, raisins, and M&M’s but I felt it needed a little more pizzazz to it so I began experimenting by adding things to the mix. I tried all kinds of different ingredients being added to the mix until over time I finally created the most amazing trail mix recipe EVER! I named it Amy’s Awesome Trail Mix and everyone who tries it falls in love with it.
In honor of National Trail Mix Day (August 31st ) I decided that I would share my special recipe with all of you so you can make a delicious batch to share with all of your friends too!

1 bag chocolate coated heath bar toffee crunch
3-4 bags Kraft premium caramel bits
1 bag chopped walnuts

Instructions: Dump all the above ingredients in a great big bowl together and use a big spoon to mix them all together. Once blended you will have trail mix perfection. Next take a big handful of the delicious mix and put it into your mouth and taste all the flavors together in one mouthful. Then enjoy eating AWESOME!!!!
