Recipe: Holiday Trail Mix! - Stamford Moms

Trail Mix is my absolute favorite snack and it can be made festive for any holiday… plus it’s EASY! You can combine snacks you probably already have in the pantry AND… you’ll love it just as much as the kids. You can also adjust the ingredients to accommodate food allergies and picky eaters.
