Raid your pantry for dried fruits, nuts, and other bite-size sweet and salty snacks. We used dried bananas and cranberries, sunflower seeds, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, raisins, pretzels, cashews, and peanuts. Put a handful of each into a large bowl, then stir gently. Store in a hard-sided container to keep ingredients from getting crushed.
Tip: You can make the trail mix a day or two ahead to save time. Store in an airtight container in a cool place so the chocolate won't melt.
