I know I just posted a trail mix recipe but I wanted to do it again. So like last time, I’m gonna give you a list again.

  • Almonds
  • Peanuts
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Crasins
  • M&Ms
  • Rasins

 

Not to chocolate ish but still good!! When I was younger I used to make a lot of trail mix. At least I called it trail mix. I just put a bunch of chocolate chips in a bowl or I would eat all the
chocolate candy out of it and not eat anything else.

Everything
goes together great. When ever I make trail mix, I don’t just throw
everything in, its the one time I’m not lazy! I like to make sure every
thing in the mix has a reason to be there. So the chocolate chips are
for chocolate, white chocolate is for sweet, peanut butter got a nutty
flavor and to go along with the peanuts, m&ms cause I like them, and
it makes it pretty, almonds for salt and smokey flavor, peanuts cause
all trail mix’s have peanuts, yogurt raisins for a creamy juicy flavor,
and pretzels for salt.

That is why I love trail mix, so many
flavors and textures. It really is the bomb!! Since all you do to make
trail mix  is put stuff in a bowl,  I make it like everyday and have it
ready for the kids when they get home.

There is that much to say
about this besides the fact it is the best trail mix you will ever
eat!!!! When I was younger we used to make our own trail mix, mine was
Made of all the chocolate and candy and nothing else. That is my perfect
trail mix. The first 4 ingredients in this, but this is great!

This
is the best snack!!! Its delicious and easy. You can just put every
thing out and the kids can make it  when they get home from school, all
you do is put stuff in a bowl!

Ingredients-

  • 1 cup almonds
  • 1 cup peanuts
  • 1 cup crasins
  • 1 cup rasins
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup M&Ms

Directions-

  1. Mix all ingredients together
  2. Serve and enjoy!

I told you I love dips .I love it when you dip your chip or
pretzal or whatever in your cheese dip and it is so cheesy when you pull
it out it keeps going like a string. Well guess what.Well come on
guess………….okay you were close but,this dip does that to.Oh yeh
its awesome and it makes me want to scream my little girl scream.But
anyway my whole family loves this.I can’t think of one negative thing
about this.Here I will make a T-chart

Positive                                      Negative

 Really cheesy

Super yummy

fast to make

low in calories(kinda)

You can see everybody enjoying you dish

It  is a filling thing to make

Its easy

See I told you there is not one negative thing about this stuff.Everybody agrees and you will to if you try it.Now

lets talk-What to dip in it-I like to dip pretzals and UTZ potato chips
in it because they both have salt which goes amazing with the cheese
and it it has a crunch texture to go with the soft cheese.Oh yeh did I
mention that the dip uses garlic salt for taste?I don’t think I did so I
will tell you now.The garlic powder adds a garlicy flavor but the
recipe barley has any in it so you don’t get a whole thing of garlic.It
is the pinch of perfect amount. Like I said in the fruit dip I love dip.
Seriously this is my FAVORITE cheese dip. Its so cheesy and when you
dip something in it it come out with a string and its super cheesy and
yummy and OMG I am drooling over it right now. I love cheese fondue!! Its cheesy and melty!! This is cheese fondue but you serve it cold, honestly all it is!
I have never made anything so easy!! It takes less then 5 minutes and you can be the worst cook in America, you can make this!! I love that show!! Worst Cooks in America. It is not on anymore but I loved that show! Well, I’m hungry so lets go!

Ingredients-

  • 8 oz of cream cheese,softened and room temperature
  • 1 quart of milk
  • garlic salt
  • A side to dip into the dip of your choice(I used pretzals and UTZ potato chips)
  • 1/2 cup Shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions-Put the cream cheese in a bowl.
Using a fork, mash the cheese while slowly pouring in the milk to
make a smooth and soft mixture. Stir in garlic salt to taste.Garnish with cheese!Serve and enjoy!

 

Chessy Pretals sticks

OMG!! This recipe is amazing!! It will save you lots of money! When your kids ask for preztals, just make these! Put them out for a party snack, sleepovers, lunch, you can pack them and go!! They are so easy to make that I don’t mind my family will eat them in an hour!  I owe all of the happy times I have had with these to my friend Janaan. When I was younger, I played on a club volleyball team.When I was 11 years old, a girl named Janaan played on my team.  We have been friends ever since. She gave me this recipe and it made it was Amazing! Janaan is also a great cook, she has been cooking for a long time so I knew it would be good when she gave it to me, I have to admit I didn’t expect it to be this good! Sorry I don’t have any pictures! Can you keep a secret?I am about to share a secret with you, so don’t tell anybody! When I post, I don’t always make that recipe that day. This is why I hardly have pictures of the finish product. Since I actually got this before I made my blog, I haven’t made this recipe since then so I don’t have any pictures! If you want a step-step picture recipe, got my chocolate cookie dough cupcake, lots of pictures! Anyway, back to these! They are pieces of heaven from the sky! I can’t express how good these are! The only other thing I can tell you to explain how good these are is to tell you to make it! I will get on my knees and beg if it makes you make these! You need to have them as bad as you need to have dessert!!!!!!!!!! These are way better than buying pretals! Saves you money and they are fresh and taste way better! If you want, you can change things up and make a salt or cinnamon- sugar pretal, the best is cheese but I admit, I like to change it up every once in a while! Who doesn’t? I’m loving these!! Who wouldn’t love a cheesy homemade pretal. Really, does anybody know anybody who doesn’t? I don’t think its possible to man kind to not like these. They are too good!!!! By the way, this recipe makes 16 of these amazing pretals. I suggest that you double it, my family ate them in 10 minutes!To be honest,  I would triple them!!!! They go by really, and they are so easy to make, you might as well make a few extra! I made the mistake of not doubling them and in my family, that won’t hurt! Well, see for yourself and Make theses!!!! ( Janaan, if you are reading tis, thanks for this great recipe and for being a great friend ever since we met:-)
