I love camping. & by camping, I mean drinking outside.
Sorry guys, thats the closest quote I could get to align with these Campfire S’Mores Trail Mix.
I am just not an outdoorsy person. I will sit by a bonfire & drink cold drinks all night, but sleeping in a tent in the woods with no shower in sight is not my idea of fun.
BUT, I will eat campfire food all day and most people do enjoy camping so I’ll supply camping treat ideas for you to make before you adventure into the woods.
It has been pretty well established at this point that I am a savory over sweet kind of eater…but ya’ll, these Campfire S’Mores Trail Mix is like candy CRACK! I made it as an easy grab & go dessert for a friends birthday party and it was well received. I swear every time I looked over at the desserts someones hand was picking up another piece of this trail mix to nibble on. Okay, most of the time it was me grabbing another bite but everyone else enjoyed it too.
This recipe is BEYOND easy to make. You can literally throw all the ingredients in, put melted chocolate on top & roll with it.
Whether you are sitting around a campfire, on a road trip or just sitting outside drinking a cold beer, this Campfire S’Mores Trail Mix is the perfect treat to snack on!
