Trail mix has a little of everything – sweetened dried fruit and salty pretzels or nut. To keep tummies full on a hike or even just hanging out in front of the campfire, these Trail Mix Rice Krispie treat bars are healthy and perfect for a camper's sweet tooth.
Ingredients and Procedure:
Makes about 12 bars. Place the oil, water and marshmallows in a medium-sized pot. Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly until the marshmallows are completely melted. Add in the Rice Krispies and trail mix. Stir until combined. Transfer the mixture to a greased 13-by-9-inch baking pan, spreading mixture completely to all sides. Let cool for about 20 minutes. Then cut into 2-by-2-inch bars and serve. Leftovers can be tightly wrapped and stored at room temperature for up to 2 days.
