Whether for a quick snack for a hike, baseball game or game night. This Chimney Park Trail Mix will be that simple snack that you will keep coming back to.
I love easy snacks. I mean who doesn’t.
Here is the key to my family and making snacks, we need to have a variety. But I hate having 5 bags of different things out – from chips, to crackers, licorice, M&M’s and whatever else. It just get to be overwhelming. And if we want to head out for the day on the lake or on a hike up in the mountains, I am not going to be carrying around 5 different snacks bags of stuff. I am sure every parent out there knows what I mean.
I made a Horsetooth Trail Mix after being inspired by my friend Sarah and her Bear Lake Trail Mix. The Horsetooth Trail Mix was a huge hit but I wanted something a little more salty in it and then of course you can’t go wrong with M&M’s in anything, am I right? So I mixed up one of our favorite trail mixes and guess what this Chimney Peak Trail Mix was a hit.
I came up with the Chimney Peak name because well we live in CO and love to hike. My kids are always naming mountains and peaks – even when we are on the road in other places. Some how every pointy peak is Chimney Peak. So while we don’t live near the real Chimney Peak in CA. To me I will always remember the time when my kids were little and named any long pointy peak – Chimney Peak. Memories like this I love that I can share here, so that I remember it 20 years from now. Enjoy friends! XOXO San

Mixing Bowls: I love having a variety of sizes of mixing bowls. From small to large, I find that having at least 3 bowls of different sizes has been an essential in my kitchen. I prefer Pyrex because of the durability.
Serving Spoon: I love to have a gorgeous and generous in size spoon to serve fruit salads with. I prefer to not have slots in my spoon for fruit salad so that you can enjoy all the delicious juice.
