Enjoy a quick snack today with this No-Bake Sweet & Salty Snack Mix using Welch’s® Fruit Snacks!
We are actually two months into our summer. That means we are just a month away from school starting and back-to-school season is upon us. That also means I’ll be making a snack mix for the car ride home after school.
We have about a 30-minute drive back home from school every day and it never fails, my kids are famished by the time I come to pick them up. I have to admit though, I don’t blame them. They eat early and that’s a long time without a snack.
This will be the first year that my daughter goes to school without a snack time and that’s her favorite part of the day! I’m a little bit nervous about her adjusting to that this year, but I do have her covered after school.
I’ve found that it makes for a much more peaceful ride home if I have a snack for them when they get in the car. This is my go-to snack mix with Welch’s Fruit Snacks. It’s also an easy snack that doesn’t make a big mess. That’s a win, right? I’d say so!
Welch’s Fruit Snacks are our 1st choice in fruit snacks since fruit is the 1st ingredient! They are made with real fruit so you can really taste the difference.
In this No-Bake Sweet & Salty Snack Mix, we used the Mixed Fruit variety along with the Berries ‘n Cherries! These two combined provide the perfect flavor for your snack mix.
We keep the fruit snacks on hand whenever we are on the go or in lunches, but we love to mix some extras in to make a great tasty snack.
Tips for Making Sweet & Salty Snack Mix:
If you decide to make a larger batch of this, be sure to store this in an airtight container. It’s a good idea to store it in a small snack size bag when ready to serve; however, it does not stay as fresh if stored in bags for more than a 24-hour period.
The airtight container will help you enjoy it for up to a week.
Snack size sealable bags are a great option for on the go when you are ready to serve it. They are the perfect portion size and easy for the kids to handle.
Serving sizes are going to vary based on the batch that you would prefer to use.
It’s easy to make gluten-free by using gluten-free pretzels instead of regular. Simple!
This snack mix combines specific ingredients to really give that sweet and salty flavor. If you are in the beginning stages of teaching the kids about food and cooking, this is a great no-bake way to get them involved.
My kids get excited any time I tell them that I’m making this snack mix and always want to help out and enjoy some fruit snacks too!
