My whole immediate family went camping this weekend and combined we have quite a few kids. This was a great and fun idea for snacking. I bought all kinds of fruits nuts seeds cereal and candies gave each child a ziploc bag and let them choose what they wanted in their bags. They loved it and even the adults made some bags too!:) Read More

This was the perfect trail mix while hanging out at the campsite. I changed it a little. I added plain M&M's and chocolate covered raisins. I also used a tropical berry fruit mix and it was just plain yummy! Everyone who tried it loved it! Good combination of energy that's for sure. Read More

We are trying to eat healthier and this is a snack that we are reaching for instead of chips etc. I admit that I do add my M&M's and Reese's Pieces though;-) This is a great recipe thank you. Read More

I find this recipe to be perfect in any combination and quantity of the listed ingredients so feel free to adjust it to suit your taste needs or to what you have on hand. Also note that if the weather is on the warmer side any candy type addition even M & M's will melt from the moisture released from the dried fruit. Everyone in the family really enjoyed this Thank you for sharing this recipe with us. Read More

This was easy and left a lot of room for adapting for personal preferences. I love this recipe and it saved me a lot of money making this myself. I love the sunflower seeds in it. I used mixed nuts and also added m&ms. Read More

great balance of tastes and textures - not too sweet not too sticky or crunchy and my kids loved helping me mix it up. Made a big batch before our road trip and it was a great on-the-go snack. Read More
