Monster Trail Mix Hobo Sack / #15 Minute Friday

Welcome To 
15 Minute Friday!


When my son was younger, we celebrated every birthday with his friends. One year we held his party in the mountains, where we hiked, rode dirt bikes and 4 wheelers, and munched on this Monster trail mix! Everyone who came to the party had a great time, and each partier took home a Monster Trail Mix Hobo Sack! It's simply a bandanna tied on a stick for easy carrying while hiking!
Monster Trail Mix
(printable recipe at end of post)
(makes 1 sack)

1/4 cup lightly salted Peanuts
1/4 cup Red, White and Blue M+M's
1/4 cup Golden Raisins
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips
1/4 cup Peanut Butter Chips 
1 small ziplock bag
1 bandanna
1 long stick

Mix together all of the ingredients.
Go looking for sticks.
Mia was helping me find sticks, but she lost interest when I wouldn't throw them for her to chase!
Zip up the trail mix in a bag, then fold bandanna over the trail mix and tie to stick. Go for a hike, and have fun!
 Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed this 15 Minute Snack! Drop by anytime! 
Next weeks 15 Minute Friday  is all about chocolate! See you then!

Sierra Nevada Mountain Trail Mix

This week our side dish is a Trail Mix that just seemed like the perfect accompaniment to our roasted turkey picnic sandwiches. We had a few handfuls with the sandwiches, and then took the rest in our backpack as we hiked a few trails. What a beautiful day, and a welcome relief from the heat in the valley. I can see this Trail Mix being perfect as a after school snack or as a part of a buffet at a football party.

 Sierra Nevada Trail Mix
3 cups Unsalted Roasted Cashews
2 cups M & M's
2 cups Craisins
1 cup Golden Raisins
2 cups mini Marshmallows
1 cup Banana Chips

Put it in a bowl and mix it up!! That's it.
I put some in these little bags for our hike.
Enjoy!
Thanks for joining me today!

Tomorrow we will be making a dessert for our picnic and hike,
a S'mores Rice Krispie Treat!
It had to be S'Mores!! What could be more fitting?!

Stop by, and grab a bite!
