Patriotic Trail Mix Recipe is the perfect snack for all your holiday celebrations. Great for Memorial Day or 4th of July parties. This salty-sweet grub is a favorite to eat during all the patriotic family events like parades & fireworks too.
Who loves awesome snacks like trail mix? We sure do, especially when we are on the go exploring all the great things to see here in North Idaho. Trail mix is one of my favorite things to munch on & so I decided it would be super cute to create this Patriotic Trail Mix Recipe for the family to enjoy during all our celebrations his summer.
Now, I could have just combined some nuts, raisins & some patriotic M&M”s & called it good. But I really wanted to not only save those M&M’s for other recipes, but I wanted to get a little more creative than that. Check out all the fun red, white & blue ingredients we added to this recipe.

Here are a few commonly asked questions?
How long will this recipe last?
Where do you find all the ingredients?
You can check the nut & candy aisle at your local grocer. But I like to just place my order on Amazon & have it all delivered quickly & easily in a couple days. This ensures I have everything I need I don’t have to worry about not finding an ingredient.
Can I use something else in place of another ingredient?
You bet! If you don’t like dried cranberries, you could use raisins. If you want more chocolate, you could use these chocolate covered blueberries instead of the candy-coated ones I chose. You could use Patriotic M&M in place of the Boson Baked Beans, or add them ALL in there. It’s your choice & it would ALL be delicious.
