Peanut Butter & Trail Mix Sandwich

PB and Trail Mix sandwichCostco is a dangerous place. So many delicious things and in such large quantities. I try not to go when I’m hungry or I’ll come home with mounds of unnecessary goodies that called my name, either from a sample cup or my ravenous wanderings up and down the aisles.

When we first moved to CDA, I did one of those ravenous wanderings and ended up bringing home a large package of trail mix {peanuts, almonds, M&Ms, and raisins}. We waited two weeks for our things to arrive so trail mix seemed like a decent choice since we were devoid of cookwar

Trail MixI adore that particular trail mix, especially the raisins which seem to be perfectly firm and salty. A few weeks ago, I noticed we still had the remnants of that bag of tasty trail mix. Inspiration struck at the sight of the last handful of nuts, chocolate, and dried fruit.

Seemed like peanut butter and the ingredients of that trail mix would be a wonderful combination. Most of the time I eat my peanut butter by the spoonful {we all know how I feel about peanut butter}, but my other favorite vehicle for peanut butter is toasted bread. A peanut butter and trail mix sandwich. Yes!

PB and Trail MixThe textural and flavor elements of this sandwich are addictive. Crunchy nuts, slightly salted and chewy raisins, and the crispy sweet bursts of chocolate. I used creamy peanut butter {which isn’t my norm} but crunchy would work well, too

Peanut Butter and Trail MixIf you didn’t happen to have pre mixed trail mix, create a custom mix. Raid your pantry for nuts, dried fruit, and sweets. Craisins, yogurt covered raisins, white chocolate chips, toasted pecan, or chopped macadamia nuts would be lovely in this sandwich. Get creative.
