On the road this summer with kids? Make this easy and delicious and easy snack mix recipe that kids love to munch on for all your travel plans.
If you'd asked me a few weeks ago if we had any travel plans for the summer, I'd have told you not much. But after a very busy few weeks, we suddenly find ourselves with two road trips and a couple of flights booked. It's going to be a lot of fun, but we're also going to be spending a lot of time in the car and on planes. If I know one thing about traveling with kids, it's that their tummies need to be kept full. There is nothing worse than a hungry cranky kid. Since it's summer, I decided to make up an easy snack mix recipe for s'mores snack mix that would be easy to make ahead and that my kids would love to snack on.
I obviously needed chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows in the mix. I decided to add popcorn as the base since it's easy to make, inexpensive and my kids love it.
Regular sized graham crackers aren't great in a snack mix so I picked up Horizon Snack Grahams. The smaller shapes work great in a snack mix. My kids also love the cow and earth shapes. The grahams come in three flavors – honey, cinnamon, and chocolate. I picked out the honey but any of the flavors will work. The grahams are also great for snacking on their own.
I didn't really measure the ingredients. I filled a bowl with popcorn and added in handfuls of chocolate chips, Horizon Snack Grahams, and mini-marshmallows.
Once the mix was all together, I filled plastic sandwich bags full of the snack mix. But they looked a little boring. So I dug through my stash to see if I had something to make them a little more “campy.”
I found a couple of bandannas from the dollar store I had leftover from making a bandanna tablecloth last year. I just tied the corners together to package them up. If I'd had a stick, I'd have added that, too! 🙂 I love how cute they turned out. They are perfect for backpacking, camping, hiking, or just traveling.
My kids loved this this snack mix! They were hovering around me as I made it and the bowl disappeared quickly. We will definitely be making this easy snack mix recipe for our travel this summer.
