Ingredients for Road Trip Snack Mix
These are all the ingredients you’ll need to make this tasty road trip snack mix: Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish® crackers Cheddar, Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish® crackers Colors, mini pretzels, oyster crackers, corn chips, breakfast cereal squares, taco seasoning mix, and a cube of butter.
This 10-minute snack mix recipe is ideal for busy families. In addition to enjoying it on road adventures, it’s also perfect for taking on hikes, for boating excursions, and camping trips.
How to Make Homemade Snack Mix
Making homemade snack mix is quick and easy to do! Start by placing the Goldfish crackers Cheddar, Goldfish crackers Colors, mini pretzels, oyster crackers, corn chips, and breakfast cereal squares in a wide bowl. With clean hands or a spatula, gently mix these ingredients together. (Note: You can scroll down to the recipe card!)
Best Snack Mix Recipe
Place the cube of butter in a small heat-resistant bowl. Melt the butter in the microwave. Add the packet of taco seasoning to the butter and stir well to combine.
Snack Mix for Travel and Adventures
Pull out a large microwavable bowl. With clean hands, transfer 1/6 of the cracker mixture to the large bowl. Drizzle some of the butter/seasoning over the snack mix. Gently toss everything together. Continue this process with the remaining ingredients to ensure the butter/seasoning is evenly spread throughout the snack mix. Microwave the snack mix for 5-6 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes just to prevent the seasoning from clumping onto individual pieces. The snack mix will become nicely crisp!
Spread warm the snack mix in an even layer on a cookie sheet lined with a silicone mat, parchment paper or aluminum foil. Allow the snack mix to cool before transferring to a serving bowl, an airtight container, or portioning out the snack mix into individual snack-size zippered plastic bags.
Fun Road Trip Snack Mix
I like putting my Road Trip Snack Mix into small lunch bags with the sides rolled down. That way the snack mix is easy to get to when traveling in the car. It’s also very convenient when passing it around, sharing the goodness with family and friends.
What destinations are on your radar for road trips this spring and summer? I look forward to hopping in the car with my loved ones and heading to the beach!
