S’more Snack Mix

It’s the middle of summer, have you had a S’more yet? Well today I am going to share with you a simple and delicious S’more Snack Mix. This is perfect sweet treat for picnics, camping, going to the beach or simply binge watching Netflix.

S’more Snack Mix
 
Ingredients
  • 10 Oz. Box Teddy Grahams
  • 20 Oz. Chocolate Almond Bark, melted
  • 4 Cups Mini Marshmallows
  • Plastic Snack Bags
  • Wax Paper
Instructions
  1. Lay out 10 oz. of Teddy Grahams on a piece of wax paper.
  2. Melt Chocolate Almond Bark in microwave according to package directions.
  3. Pour melted Almond Bark over Teddy Grahams.
  4. Sprinkle 4 Cups Mini Marshmallows over top.
  5. Let sit for 2-3 hours and bag into plastic sandwich bags.

Now believe me, these are DELICIOUS! I could have made more bags, but I ate a lot of the snack mix before they made it into the bags, it’s that good! Once the chocolate has hardened make sure to bag them up so the Teddy Grahams and marshmallows don’t get stale! You could certainly add more to this mix as well, perhaps adding Mini M&Ms, pretzel sticks or peanuts!

Although you could simply sit down and devour all of this snack mix yourself, or like I said before, bring it with you on the boat or on a picnic. However, if you care to share you can click here and download a cute note to staple to the top of your plastic baggie to create a cute gift for someone.

I hope you enjoy this snack mix, it sure screams summer and is a simple, delicious treat that is fun and easy to make. I would even suggest getting the kids involved, they would love making this too!

Happy Summer!

My family has spent Memorial Day Weekend camping since before I was even born! Even though the tradition has changed over the years, we still spend the weekend together camping out in my parent’s back yard. This year was no exception! All those years camping has given me so many wonderful memories of fishing, doing puzzles, playing cards, going for walks, canoing and especially cooking over a campfire.  Continue reading “3 Day Camping Meal Plan”

Delicious Foods on a Stick

As anyone who loves the Minnesota State Fair knows – food on a stick is a beautiful thing. But you don’t have to go for something fatty and fried! We’ve found some great recipes for food on a stick that are also good for you.

Caprese Salad on a Stick: Skewer fresh cherry tomatoes, chunks of fresh mozzarella and a basil leaf for a quick and elegant appetizer. Drizzle with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper for a delicious treat.

Veggies Your Kids will Eat: Kids love having fun with their food and kabobs can help you get them to eat their veggies! Thin carrot ribbons made with a vegetable peeler or mandolin look cool on a skewer. Add “shapes” of cheese, round cherry tomatoes, bell peppers can be cut into triangles to keep your kabob whimsical. Skewer a snap pea on top and you’re set! Dip in ranch dressing or hummus and your kids may be asking for more in no time. Continue reading “Food on a Stick – Recipes”
