#10 make homeade trail mix

we are hosting a bachelor party at the house on friday, and this was something i could make in advance that will keep until friday. in fact, it will keep for a whole week, sealed in an air-tight container.

sweet and spicy trail mix

2 1/2 cups of pretzel sticks

1 1/2 cups plain almonds

1 stick butter

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1/2 tablespoon ground mustard

1/2 tablespoon paprika

line a baking sheet with foil, and preheat the oven to 350. then, in a large bowl, combine pretzels and almonds.

on the stove top, bring the butter, mustard and paprika to a boil, all melty like and pour it over the almonds and pretzels. mix well.

pour contents of bowl onto your foil lined baking sheet, and spread out evenly, and then pop into the oven for about 10 minutes, until crispy. stir occasionally. if your oven cooks slower, i’d do 15-18 minutes. i have a gas oven and everything gets super hot, quick!

cool completely before moving to an air-tight container. the foil makes a nice way to not have to scrape a mess off your cooking sheet. :)

enjoy!
