Traveling & Chex MixPosted: January 8, 2012
We decided to take a little trip before starting our spring semester. Ya. We have yet to start. Its lovely.
We are heading out to Big Sky, MT. Twelve hours in a small car. Four people squished inside. Two snowboards packed on top. An abundance to treats & snacks flowing out.
Our contribution to our snack stash was a giant batch of chex mix and a box of oatmeal cookies.
Our variation on the chex mix includes:
– honey chex instead of wheat chex
– honey roasted peanuts instead of regular
– m&ms. who doesn’t love a little chocolate with their salt?
For the oatmeal cookies we used a bag mix. Sorry. It happens. Our variation to these cookies was a cup of raisans in half (not my choice. Who wants to eat a healthy snack in a healthy cookie? Bad idea if you ask me. Might as well eat a cracker.) In the other half of the dough we mixed a cup of chocolate chunks, and a cup of butterscotch chips. Now that is a cookie. Loaded with sugar. Thats what a cookie should be.
