For that, I will put snack mixes in small tins or other containers to nestle them in the large box or basket. I love to tuck in bags of holiday coffee, boxes of small flavored creamers (the shelf-stable kind), tins of cookies, boxes of biscotti, and much more.
This Hot Cocoa Trail Mix, from Jocelyn at Inside BruCrew Life, looks like it will be a hit with everyone. It contains peanuts (both regular and chocolate-covered), cocoa almonds, chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows which have been coated in white chocolate. Wow. (Have you ever tasted cocoa almonds? I bought a box of the individual packs of them to take on the plane last summer when we went to Nevada. They are delicious and I imagine they will add a great flavor to this trail mix.)
This wouldn't be practical for a summer hike (unless it was kept cold), but you could certainly pack some into a tin and keep it on the counter for the snackers in your household. Give it a try! I think I probably will!
