I volunteered to bring some treats to the battalion's Run 4 Resilience - I've had some poor luck with granola bar recipes and them falling apart. So for August's run, I decided to go trail mix for the treats. I took to my Appetizer & Snacks board on Pinterest and picked out this recipe from Nikki of Chef in Training. Both her and her sister-in-law Sarah of High Heels & Grills have posted this recipe that is a huge hit at their family reunion.
It was a huge hit at the run too! I doubled the recipe and filled over 40 snack baggies with trail mix and they disappeared within minutes. My kids each had a set too and they really loved all the different snacks they got to have in ONE little baggie :)
What you need:
- 18 oz. Traditional Chex Mix
- 2 1/2 cups Bugles
- 2 1/2 cups Chocolate Chip Teddy Grahams
- 1 1/2 cups Pretzel M&Ms
- 1 cup licorice bits
- 1 1/2 cups Goldfish crackers
- 1 1/2 cups Swedish fish
- Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container.
