This tradition was started when I was a kid by my wise and wonderful parents who knew that the only way to get seven kids to sit and watch all four sessions of Conference was to feed them junk food.
Because, although it sounds nutritious...G.C. Trail Mix has had all healthy components removed, resulting in a big bowl of candy and peanuts. But, hey...that's why we love it.
I know each of my siblings will have his/her own version of the original recipe and I would love to hear all your secret combinations.
Over the years, Brad and I have played with the recipe and each have our own personal favorites:
Our Family's G.C. Trail Mix
Cracklin' Oat Bran Cereal
M&M's...plain, peanut, and peanut butter
Tiny pretzel knots
Spiced gum drops
Candy corn (October Conference)
Jelly beans (April Conference)
*Mix according to taste....serve and enjoy!
