With orange season in full swing… I dried a few pounds worth of orange slices and wanted to find ways to use them other than making orange powder.
Sometimes I like to eat a few dried orange slices when I’m in the mood for something tangy and if I want to tone down the tangy bite, I throw in some chocolate chips. Hmm!
Then one day, dried cherries and almonds got thrown into the mix… and that’s how I came about with this delicious trail mix.
As you can see below, my little man couldn’t keep his hands out of the bowl (or the picture!)… he was trying to get all the chocolate chips. Swiper!
My kids really enjoy this mix. Of course, they go for the chocolate first :o)
I LOVE this mix because cherries are my favorite and when mixed together with dried oranges, almonds & chocolate… it is simply delicious.
If you are not a fan of cherries (like my hubby), you can use cranberries instead… just don’t tell me if you do that ;o)
I have other blends of trail mix that I will (hopefully) share with you later, but for now… let’s make some Cherries & Sunshine Trail Mix!
