. . . for Lauren and Lauren: Target snack

February 10, 2014

Target snack

 sweater: old navy   jeggings: walmart    scarf: kiklaru   boots: dsw

Please ignore my tired, exaggerated smile and an attempt at a top bun.  It was Sunday morning before church and despite no showering I was dressed and we were on time, so I'm counting it as a win.  


If' you've never tried Target's trail mix, you are missing out on yet another reason to love shopping there.  I don't buy it often because it's kind of expensive plus even though it has peanuts and raisins I have a hard time justifying that it is a healthy option.  Mostly because eating half the bag is so far from a real servings worth.  

But every time my sister comes to visit, we go to Target (at least once) and she's buys some "Target snack" for us to share.  It's pretty much all the fun ingredients to add when you make Monster cookies, which are one of my favorite kind of cookies. 
While making it on my own means it comes without my sister and a trip to Target, it still makes me happy and comes much cheaper.  This makes a huge amount so I've made half of it before and still had more than enough to eat far too quickly.  

Monster Mix:

2 bags dark chocolate M&M's
I box raisins
2 cans peanuts party or cocktail mix
2 bags dark chocolate baking chips
2 bags peanut butter baking chips


Unfortunately I lack serious self control with snacks like this, especially when I'm home all the time.   Forget what I said before.  Peanuts. healthy.  Raisins.  healthy.

I have a very unhealthy addiction to trail mix. Target's varieties always leave me stumped: I can never decide which kind to get!
My favorite is anything with dried pineapple in it.

I haven't tried it yet!! But I'm with you....no control when it comes to yummy snacks like that. And yes...a total win if you're on time for church!

Target has the best trail mix!! I love the one with dried cherries in it. I should try to make my own someday but then again I'd have to give most of it away because I LOVE it :) No self control when sweets are involved...

I wish I looked that good without a shower! I bet you were the cutest one there. Also, trail mix is always a win. The more chocolate, the better :)

I LOVE your scarf! I have a mustard colored one on my wishlist- something about the long fringe!

And that Monster Mix at Target is the bomb dot com! SO tasty! Smart to make it at home but I could not be left alone with it...I'd inhale it in two seconds!

I thinking reading this post was a problem. I totally Just kidding. But seriously this looks so easy and very yummy. But I am like you and would probably have it done before offering some to my husband.

XoXo,
