Santa's Trail Mix

Sometimes cookies and milk aren't going to cut it for Santa. He's got a lot of places to go and only a limited amount of time. Early on, we noticed that Santa only took a single bite from his cookie. That's not good! Santa, you have to keep your energy up! Kids all over the world are too excited to have you crash from a lack of sugar.

So my mom, the genius that she was - found the perfect recipe. Santa's Trail Mix! It's got everything Santa could need. Let me refer to you the major food groups at the North Pole - Candy,  candy canes, candy corn, and syrup! So for Santa's grab and go snack we have candy galore, with some cinnamon cereal and white chocolate pretzels (just for that touch of saltiness).

This makes a lot! So fill Santa's to-go bag to the top and then dole out the rest to your friends and family.

What will you be leaving for Santa tonight? Cookies? Or are you one of those people who leave  veggies? Share your Santa meals in the comments section!

  1. "So you like sugar?"

    "Is there sugar in syrup? Then YES!"
