It's hard to believe that my college daughter has almost completed her first year of college. A few days back, I asked her what type of snacks she would like for studying for finals. Last semester, I bought her some trail mix with chocolate covered expresso beans. She asked if I could put some in her snack box for finals coming up in 2 weeks.
I searched online and found a recipe that was quite easy.
It started with expresso beans. Because this was the most expensive items, I only purchased a half of a pound of the beans.
The other ingredients were one bag of salted almonds, a bag of banana chips, a bag each of dark chocolate chips and peanut butter chips. The final ingredient was a jar of peanuts.
Toss all the ingredients into a bowl. Trail mix completed.
Now all there was to do is to find a receptacle to easily transport it in.
The trail mix looked scrumptious.
I do realize that this is not a low calorie trail mix. However, I think it will become a great snack studying late at night.
Let's get studying!
The results are in. She loves the new trail mix.
