EasyTrail Mix

Sometime during the day I get extremely busy and forget to take a snack with me. I have always like trail mix but some of them couldn't eat because of the pecans, coconut, or other ingredients in them. Lately, I have taken to making my own because first, I can put everything I like in it and not worry about accidently eating a walnut. Second and most important making your own can save you money (depending on the kind of mix that you were buying most large bags range from $6 to $10).

I tend to put a good amount of peanuts and cashews in it since beside almonds those are the only nuts that I can eat. Just a warning: this is not the healthiest snack I have made. Here is my recipe for my trail mix
1 cup unsalted or lightly salted peanuts
1 cup unsalted or lightly salted cashew halves
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup raisins
1. Place cup of peanuts in bowl.

2. Place cup of cashews in bowl.

3. Pour in cup of raisins.

4. Add mini milk chocolate chips.

5.  Add white chocolate chips.

With a spoon mix all the ingredients together.

Personally, I like trail mix because it has a good amount of salt (from the nuts) and some sweetness (from chocolate). I do add peanut butter chips sometimes ( I forget to get them this time) but I did melt some peanut butter and stir it in at the end (the picture at the top shows the end result).
Does anyone else have a easy snack they make for when they are on the go?
