Fall Inspired Trail Mix

This recipe is admittedly not a cupcake recipe. But it’s just so easy and delicious that I couldn’t help but share it! I made these trail mix jars as favors for a bridal shower this weekend and they were a huge hit!

Yummy Treats - Festive Sweets

My Fall inspired Trail Mix Treat Jars are fun to make and would be great little presents for co-workers, teachers, school lunch boxes, and more. Let’s get started!

What you’ll need:

  • 8 oz Mason Jars (optional)
  • 1 bag of Pretzels
  • 3 Cups of Honey Roasted Peanuts
  • 2 Cups of Walnuts
  • 15 Caramel Squares (I cut them into smaller chunks)
  • 4 Cups of Candy Corn
  • 4 Cups of Raisins
  • 4 Cups of Cranberries
  • 1 large bag of Reese’s Pieces

Ina large bowl, mix all of your ingredients together. Fill each mason jar with trail mix. I like to use cupcake liners and ribbon to decorate the top of the mason jars.

Don’t feel like using mason jars? Here’s some other fun ideas for sharing your trail mix:

  • Fall colored goody bags
  • Clear Ziploc bags
  • Big Punch Bowl
  • Solo Cups
  • Piping bags tied with ribbon
  • Small Tupperware

Have fun creating these cute little mason jar treats!

~ Stay Sweet~

    Fantastic idea and I love that you use a cupcake liner to seal the jars.
    Have a super day.
