Duke Dog Snack Mix

Pin It

Summer is over and once again we are empty nesters.
Our girlie moved into an apartment with her best friend and classes begin tomorrow.
We miss having her around, but at least she is close by :)

College students are always on the go, so I decided to make Madison a somewhat healthy snack
mix to carry around in case she gets hungry between classes.

I thought a festive mix with her school colors would be fun.
Madison is a sophomore at James Madison University and the Duke Dog is their mascot.
I found the purple plastic mini tub at the Dollar Store and cut the letters with my Cricut.
The small container with the clear lid is from Target.
I thought this would be perfect to carry the mix around in her backpack.
The purple and yellow m&m's are from Martin's - I was so excited to find them!

Here's to a new school year!
Go Dukes!
