Tractor Trail Mix

Posted on October 2, 2014 at 8:00 AM by Iowa Corn

Tractor Trail Mix is easy to throw together and lasts well in the containers.  Keeps antsy kids from being to distracting when you’re hammering down in the middle of harvest.  My kids pick all of the M&M’s out, my sister dodges all of the candy corn and my Dad and I like the peanuts.  There’s a little bit for everyone!  (Though I do get fussy when there are not extra peanut butter M&M’s in my jar.)

Tractor Trail Mix
by: Cristen & Tanna & Ceil

1 jar dry roasted peanuts
1 jar honey roasted peanuts
1 small bag candy corn (omit if you desire)
1 regular bag regular M&M’s
1 regular bag peanut M&M’s
1 regular bag peanut butter M&M’s
1 regular bag Reese’s Pieces

Pour into large mixing bowl, stir to combine.  Portion in leftover peanut jars or plastic bags. Makes: roughly 5-6 regular peanut jars full. (How can you ever tell when you sample along the way as you are making it?)

Feel free to add raisins, dried cherries, Hot Tamales (ask my sister about that, it is her recommendation), chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, almonds and anything else you can think of!

This simple, yet satisfying treat is a hit for kids (and adults) of all ages!
