Trail Mix1

I love to whip this up and pack it for my little mittenkidz when we head out adventuring . Of course they dig out all of the M&Ms first, but the remaining ingredients are delectable as leftovers for my husband and me, even sans the chocolate, so we don’t mind.

mittenkidz Trail Mix

  • Cheddar Goldfish Crackers
  • Pretzel Goldfish Crackers
  • M&Ms (the dark chocolate variety are especially good)
  • Dried Cherries (sooo much better than raisins, and a Michigan delicacy!)
  • Salted Peanuts
  • Sesame Sticks (optional)

Proportions are all up to you.

Another thought? Set up a “Trail Mix Bar” before you head out with every imaginable trail mix ingredient available, so that everyone can create their own. This is especially fun for larger groups – have everyone bring an ingredient or two and their own bag or container for the trail.

What is your favorite trail mix ingredient?
