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!

Fruit and Graham Cracker Snacks~15 Minute Friday!

Welcome to 
15 Minute Friday!



(printable recipe at end of post)
(makes 4 snacks)
4 slices of Cream Cheese
2 Chocolate Graham Crackers (cut in half)
12 Fresh Blueberries
2 slices of Fresh Strawberries
1/2 Banana
Sprinkle of Confectioners Sugar


This is a very simple recipe, and you can easily change it to make it your own. I used a block of cream cheese, but I am sure that whipped cream cheese can be used just as easily. This recipe uses strawberries, blueberries and bananas, but any combination would work. I can see using pineapple chunks, orange segments, and mango for a tropical touch! I sprinkled the top of the crackers with a light dusting of confectioners sugar, but a drizzle of honey, or a sprinkle of coconut flakes would be awesome.
These tasty snacks came together so quickly! I cut the banana slices and strawberries into smaller pieces and used the blueberries whole. I covered each graham cracker with cream cheese, topped it with the fruit, and sprinkle with confectioners sugar.  I made all four of these pieces in about 8 minutes, well within the 15 minute time limit!  

 How 15 Minute Friday works~ 

Every Friday I plan to post a simple and quick recipe that can be made in 15 minutes or less. It might be a morning bite, or maybe an
afternoon snack, or evening treat to enjoy. The only rules I have set for myself is that the recipe has to be able to be made within 15 minutes. That time does not include getting the ingredients out of the pantry or fridge, but once they are gathered together, the clock begins! The point is to present to you, a quick, tasty, recipe that you will enjoy and won't take you all day to cook.

Thank you for joining me for the inaugural issue of 15 Minute  Friday! I hope you enjoyed it!
