During the warmer months, my husband and I really enjoy hiking. It is a great time to get outdoors, exercise, and enjoy each other’s company. A couple of years ago, we set out for what we thought would be a nice walk with our dog, Honey, at the park. It turned into a 6 mile hike and we were off the trail for some time. We hadn’t planned on going for so long, and didn’t have any water or snacks with us. After that day, we swore we would bring a backpack with us any time we went to the park!
Peanut Lovers’ Trail Mix
One of my favorite things to bring with us on a hike is trail mix. We’ve tried many different types of trail mix, but the one I really like most is a peanut lovers’ trail mix we have found at the store. It isn’t the perfect mix of ingredients, but it satisfies my hunger and ever-persistent craving for peanut butter.
It just seems to be missing something. I didn’t know what until I was at Walmart the other day. I was walking (longingly) down the candy aisle when I saw that M&M’s® brought back the M&M’s® Crispy!
They were available in a big bag in the candy aisle as well as individual sizes in the checkout lanes. I love that the individual snack size bags contain only 180 calories per serving, but I knew I wanted the big bag so that I could make the perfect trail mix recipe.
Crispy Peanut Lovers’ Trail Mix
This trail mix only has 4 ingredients and is so easy to make! Other than mixing the ingredients together, the only thing you may want to do is break the thin pretzel sticks in half. This will make it easier to grab a handful and toss it in your mouth.
- 1 cup unsalted peanuts
- 1 cup peanut butter chips
- 1 cup thin pretzel sticks
- 1/2 cup M&M'sÂ® Crispy
- Break thin pretzel sticks in half
- Add all ingredients to a bowl or gallon bag and mix.
Adding M&M’s® Crispy to the recipe gives an extra crunch and a bit of chocolate to the mix. You all know how much I love the chocolate and peanut butter combination!
