Anyone on the hunt for some good Valentine’s Day Recipe ideas? If so I a few fun Valentine’s Day Trail Mix recipes that are, super yummy, and customizable. So be sure to check back often between now and Valentine’s Day I’m gong to share several other great recipes for Valentine’s Day. It’s my favorite holiday for cooking, and coming up with fun stuff because I’m in love with the color PINK! YUP. It gives me a reason to create things that are pink, or have pink, and get away with sending it to work with my husband, lol.
I recently made a huge batch of this yummy trail mix as an early Valentine’s Day gift to my wonderful husband. He works for an oil field company here in New Mexico, and drives around checking the pumps… Well, let’s just say he is in the truck, nowhere near a place to grab something to eat or drink so I try to always send him with something to munch on while he’s working.
I made a HUGE bag of this Valentine’s Day Trail Mix, so it would last him a little while. He drives a lot during the day, and it’s typically in the middle of nowhere, so he cannot just grab something to eat. I try to get creative and make things that don’t go back quickly, that he likes, and of course can share with the other guys from the office.
The Valentine’s Day Trail Mix was a HUGE hit, gone in 2 days! I knew they would eat it, but 2 days is pretty impressive I made several pounds of it . My husband told everyone he walks with how much I enjoy cooking for Valentine’s Day, and one of his work buddies request Valentine’s Day Muddy Buddy’s, so I will be sharing that as well in the next few days. Anyway, let’s get started you are going to love how easy, and wonderful this is.
