Kids hands get sticky when making this, so we used plastic gloves to avoid the food sticking to their hands! The recipe was a hit, and so easy to make.

These taste like a gourmet trail mix and there are so many ways you could make them, different nuts, different dried fruits, even add a bit of coconut.  Plus they take minutes to make!
