Game Night Trail Mix (raw, vegan, gluten-free)

~ raw, vegan, gluten-free ~

This recipe was inspired when I created a whole wonderful stockpile of Tootsie Chew candies.  When I made those candies, I cut them into 2” pieces and wrapped each one individually.  I was busy creating Christmas gifts for my loved ones.

Anyway, I ended up with a bunch of oddball sized pieces when I was finished.  So, I cut them into smaller bite-sized chunks and tossed them with a variety of nuts, dried cranberries, and chocolate chips.  Scrump-Dilly-Ish-Ous! I will share links below for the candies.  You don’t have to make them all… I am just sharing an idea on how you can transform one recipe into another.

The first thing that came to mind was GAME NIGHT!  Peering down at the bowl, I could envision many different hands diving into the bowl at the same time, scrounging for a handful of goodness.

For creative gift packaging, I had ordered some Clear Gumball Tubes and loaded them up with the trail mix.  I think they turned out adorable!  To complete the gift idea, I had a set of personalized deck of playing cards made for a handful of friends. Shutterfly.com is just one of the many places that do them.

Also for not just gift-giving, but also for quick-grab-and-go-snacks for Bob, I made up some small bags.  They are 4 x 6” bags and hold about 1/2 cup.  You can find them (here).  I hope you enjoy this recipe.
