I’m not exactly sure when this tradition started in my family, but I vaguely remember it one year while I was in middle school. My grandmother gave me a tin of Teddy Bear Trail mix with a ticket to a special outing hidden in the bottom. It’s been a part of our holiday treats ever since. While the fun name and cute teddy bear cookies appeal to the kids at our Christmas parties, adults find it just as irresistible and hard to stop eating. With just three ingredients and no baking, it is simple enough for kids to make.
Teddy Bear Trail Mix
- Cinnamon Toast Crunch
- Teddy Graham cookies
- M&M’s (we purchased a giant bag to have some leftover for something else)
In a large bowl, pour the ingredients and mix. Voila!
