Recipe Week: Spring Trail Mix

When preparing to go to the cabin earlier this month I began my snack packing ritual.  We travel with a lot of snacks in the car in an attempt to avoid junk (at least somewhat) and as a distraction for fussy kids.  This time, the kids and I made spring trail mix.  It was a hit!

Spring Trail Mix

2 c. Chickadee Crackers (Target's generic fish crackers - much more spring like and tastier)
1  bag Easter M&Ms
2 c. Dried Cranberries
4 c. Multigrain Cheerios
2 c. Lightly salted roasted peanuts
1 c. Dried Apple Chips

Mix well. We bagged this up into 8 snack size baggies (which I stashed all over from diaper bag to my camera bag and replenished frequently).  The remainder we had in a larger ziplock in our car snack bag.  Possibly not our healthiest snack, but very tasty and well-loved by our little traveling crew.

Abbey - I always have a huge container of my homemade trail mix for the fussiest person in the house (me). I tend to not like salty things, so all the nuts are unsalted. Apple chips sound like a great addition!

So any and all combination of the following:

Dried cherries (sometimes)
Yogurt covered raisins
Cheerios (plain)
Chocolate chips
Pistachios (shelled)
Sunflower seeds

We made our own little version for the party...I couldn't remember exactly what your recipe said while I was at the grocery we forgot the apple chips. We did add a few jelly beans for Easter though...oh & we had the bunny-shaped crackers. So fun.
