  • When we snack on trail mix from the store, my kids go right for the chocolate pieces and ignore the rest. But in this ingenious recipe, melted chocolate is poured over the nuts, seeds, and fruit, so the kids eat all the goodness instead of just picking out the goodies. (Be sure to bring hand wipes with you to tidy chocolaty fingers.)
Ingredients
  • 3 cups nuts (I used peanuts, almonds, and pecans)
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries or cherries
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
X  

 

Instructions
  1. Mix together the nuts, sunflower seeds, coconut flakes, raisins, and dried cranberries or cherries. Spread the mixture on a baking sheet lined with waxed paper.

  2. Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave. Pour the chocolate over the baking sheet in ribbons. Stir to coat everything. Let the chocolate cool, then break the mix into pieces and pack it in individual containers. Makes 12 servings.
