(nut-free) Valentine's trail mix



Valentine's Trail Mix inspired by mom extraordinaire, JPV
**nut-free**
makes 2 1/2 gallon-size Zip-loc bags

2 boxes (12.4 oz. each)  Kashi Heart-to-Heart cereal*
2 bags (5 oz each) Craisins*

Combine everything in a large bowl/pot/bag and mix/shake to combine. I laid each ingredient out in bowls and let the kids scoop the ingredients into gallon-sized zip-loc baggies using various measuring cups, and then shake to their hearts content...

*You can use any brand you'd like, but I've been specific in listing the ones above because I searched out nut-free ingredients so my boys could share this with their classmates, under our school's strict nut-free policy. For local (New Canaan, CT-area) sources, I did my shopping at Shoprite in Norwalk.

Optional sweet additions (I couldn't find these nut-free so I left them out): yogurt-covered raisins, yogurt-covered pretzels, dried cherries, white chocolate chips...
