Need a quick, easy, fun, red, white, and blue snack for your Independence Day gathering? How about a little 4th of July Trail Mix?
Hey everyone, I’m over at Evermine’s blog with yet another cute little snack that will make all the kids at your 4th of July bash happy little campers – this super duper easy 4th of July Trail Mix!
I think goodie bags are such a cute little gift idea for kids and teens because it’s personal and say, “Hey, thanks for coming.” But also, it keeps the kiddos out of the cooks hair because they are occupied eating everything inside their fun little goodie bag.
What I like about trail mix, especially trail mix that has kids in mind, is that you can throw almost anything together. Voila, you have a trail mix. Take it on a hike or munch on it from your backyard.
For this trail mix, I used peanuts (because my kids love peanuts), but any nut will work. Also, mini marshmallows, red and blue M&M’s (boy, did the kids have fun sorting out the M&M colors!), and chocolate chips. You could add more on top of this for variety, like mini pretzels, shredded coconut, dried blueberries or cranberries, or Cheerios.
Basically, whatever you have on hand and whatever your kids like is going to go down as the best 4th of July snack in history (ish). So what I’m saying is, you can’t lose!
Head on over to Evermine today to order cute labels and goodie bags before the holiday gets here!
Have a great 4th of July, everyone!
