I call it trail mix, but it's really mostly candy. The basic idea is, “everything I can think of that’s peanut and/or chocolate.”
- peanut m&m’s
- milk chocolate m&m’s
- reese’s pieces
- chocolate chips
- double dipped chocolate peanuts
- mini peanut butter cups
Those last two are the only ones that are remotely hard to find. Dipped peanuts can be found at any bulk candy store. The mini peanut butter cups, I get from Trader Joe’s. At my local Jewel, there are bags of mixed peanut butter and chocolate chips, and I’ve used those sometimes. It’s still good if you leave stuff out.
There are also peanut butter m&m’s. I’ve tossed in butterscotch chocolate chips in the past, just because they look right.
Proportions are highly negotiable. I shoot for about the same amount of everything. I get the big bags of m&m’s, etc., and then a gallon ziplock bag will hold about half a bag of each. Mix by rolling the gallon bag around.
I hope this inspires some of you to provide for the expansion of our work force (and I don’t mean with new hires).
