The best part of camping is the s’mores. Sitting round a campfire roasting (or in my case, burning) marshmallows to make a gooey, delicious dessert definitely wins against all other camping activities (These include swatting mosquitoes, shivering in the cold, and waking up stiff and bruised from the rocks. Camping is not my favorite.)
Unfortunately, you can’t pack your campfire and pointy stick in your lunchbox. Fortunately, you can pack a bag of this trail mix. You need less than 5 minutes and 50¢ per serving!
S'mores Trail Mix
- 4 cups Cheerios
- 12 oz bag chocolate chips
- 1 cup mini marshmallows
- Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
- Place in Ziploc bags for easy storage.
The beauty of trail mix is that you can put together just about anything you have lying around. Cereal is a great trail mix base, and you can add any dried fruit, nuts, or chips you think would taste good. The s’mores combo is definitely my favorite, with froot loops, dried cranberries, and whip chocolate chips placing a close second. Anybody have a favorite combo themselves? Leave it in the comments below. I’m always looking for new ideas!
