I am a reader and I love when I am reading a great book and just relaxing. I like to have munchies around so I don’t have to get up to great a snack. The things that I enjoy are: Pretzels, popcorn, candy, snack crackers, or even cookies. But I found that I enjoy making Trail Mixes. That way I have all kinds of variety when it comes to my snacks. There are all kind of things that you can add to your own trail mix. I am going to list some of the things that I enjoy adding to my own.
Nuts and Seeds: Walnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds, pecans, pistachios, cashews, hazelnuts, macadamia nuts, brazil nuts.
Dried Fruit: Mango, pineapple, cranberries, cherries, apricots, papaya, banana chips, strawberries, raisins, figs, dates, raspberries.
Candies: Mini peanut cups, marshmallows, gummy bears, other gummy candy, reese’s pieces, M&Ms, candy corn, sugar babies, caramel chips, butterscotch chips, peanut butter chips
Chocolate: Chocolate chips (DC, WC, MC), sixlets, jordan almonds
Salt Snacks: Popcorn, pretzel, sesame sticks, cheese crackers, cheese balls, chex mixes (love the caramel one or the spicy cheesy one).
I know if I put all of these things in a single bowl or bag that would be a little crazy. I do usually mix them in one or two bowls and then I scoop them into zippy bags and put them away. That way I have them for when I am ready to snuggle with a good book. I am ready to munch away. So Happy Reading and happy snacking. Tell me what you like to snack on when you read. Maybe I need some new idea.
