Grandma's Snack Mix


Snack Mix

I got the idea for this snack mix from the Hungry Girl 200 for 200 Cookbook. We were going to Iowa to take care of our three grandsons while our daughter and her husband went out of town for the weekend so I thought I’d make a snack mix for the kids. My oldest grandson has all his teeth but his 16 month old twin brothers don’t so the snack mix couldn’t have things that are too hard in it. The Hungry Girl recipe calls for broken up peanut butter granola bars which the twins would choke on so that wouldn’t work. I came up with using Reese’s Puffs to get chocolate and peanut butter flavors along with freeze dried strawberry slices and banana puffs for this mix. It’s pretty tasty so if adults want to dig in it’s 102 calories per crunchy cup!

1 – 1.48 oz. cannister of Hy-Vee Banana Little Puffs or Gerber Finger Foods Banana Fruit Puffs
1 – 1 oz. pkg. of freeze-dried sliced strawberries, broken into small pieces
3 C. Reese’s Puffs cereal

Toss all ingredients together in a bowl. Makes 7 cups.

    What a good idea! I am always looking for snacks to carry in the diaper bag. I am sure this would be a hit with her. :)
