Patriotic Trail Mix Quick + Easy Shared Treats
The sweet and crunchy Patriotic Trail Mix is filled with sugar-coated grains, mixed with mini marshmallows, licorice and M&Ms.
I love Muddy Buddies and Puppy Chow, probably because I love Chex. They’re great for making easy-to-share snacks! The Patriotic Trail Mix is the perfect treat for any patriotic holiday like July 4th, Memorial Day or Veterans Day!
Festive and relaxing treats!
Hello everyone, my name is Lily! I love sharing simple and delicious food with you, and I love the Fourth of July too! ! This is one of my favorite vacations. I’m so glad we were able to celebrate it with our family and cousins in Arizona.
We’ve made a treat that’s perfect to enjoy while watching the fireworks – it’s a patriotic road combo. It has Chex covered in white chocolate, red, white and blue M&Ms, twizzlers (but you can use any kind of licorice) and marshmallows. I saw the recipe on Sprinkle Some Fun and wanted to try it. marvelous! I wish I had some now.
I hope you really enjoy this recipe. I really think your family will enjoy the treat while watching the fireworks, so make sure to do it for them. I think your kids will love it! !
