Patriotic Trail Mix - candy coated cereal mixed with mini marshmallows, licorice and M&Ms making it a perfect treat for any patriotic holiday like Fourth of July, Memorial Day or Veteran's Day!

Hey, it’s me Lily – again!

Guess what happened on Thursday morning? My aunt, Tara, and cousin, Hannah, came here to Texas to help us pack up and go back to Arizona! I’m so glad they are here. We are packing but also getting in some last-minute Texas fun. One thing we did was go to the America Ninja Warrior training gym (well, one of them). Here is a picture of us there:

This is us with the Flying Squirrel!

During the summer, we love to watch this show as a family and two of our favorite contestants are Sam Sann and the Flying Squirrel. We got to see them. It was AWESOME!!!

You know what else is awesome – Fourth of July!! It’s one of my favorite holidays. I’m so glad we get to be in Arizona to celebrate it with our family and cousins. We made a treat that will be perfect to enjoy while watching the fireworks – it’s a Patriotic Trail Mix. It has Chex covered in white chocolate, red, white and blue M&Ms, twizzlers (but you can use any kind of licorice) and marshmallows. I saw the recipe on Sprinkle Some Fun and wanted to give it a try. It is AMAZING! I wish I had some of it right now. Here is the recipe:

Patriotic Trail Mix
 
Serves: 10-12
Ingredients
  • 3 cups Corn Chex
  • 15 licorice, cut up in quarters
  • 1 cup red, white and blue M&Ms

  1. Place corn Chex in large bowl.
  2. Melt candy coating on low heat in a small pot. Stir constantly and melt until smooth. Pour over Chex and mix until cereal is all coated. Pour onto wax paper and spread out. Let set.
