Endless PossiblitiesTrail Mix

Trail mix is one of my favorite snacks. It's the perfect mixture of sweet and salty. The last year I taught, one student kept bringing me bags of it to keep in my desk for a snack and I probably ate a huge bag per week....Probably one of the things that helped me gain 75 lbs during my pregnancy! (GRRR!)
It seems like every store-bought mix contains something that is not my favorite or a higher proportion of something than I would like. So instead of purchasing a bag this time, I thought I would try my hand at making my own. I added some of my favorite things, but you could mix whatever you like in yours. Endless possibilities.
I shopped at Aldi for these ingredients and they cost about $4 all together. Your cost would depend on your ingredients of choice.

Makes about 4 cups
1-6oz pkg dried cranberries
1-8oz pkg vanilla yogurt covered raisins
1-20 oz can cashews
1-4oz bag pecans
Other things I love in trail mix...
peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, cinnamon chips
peanut butter m&m's or really any kind of m&m's
any kind of dried fruit
chocolate or yogurt covered dried fruits
