Hiking Chex Mix

Hiking Chex Mix

This easy Hiking Chex Mix is so much more flavorful than a pre-made trail mix. It’s perfect for a cold weather trek like our annual First Day Hike.

In the summer we trade the chocolate and peanut butter chips for M&Ms so we don’t end up with a melted mess in our packs. Swap out any ingredients you like to create your own custom mix.
