Trail Mix Bar

Perhaps the best known camping snack, trail mix is simple to make, easy to store and packed with protein. For easier portability, form your trail mix into bars. Simply mix together rolled oats, peanut butter, brown sugar, a bit of salt and a handful of our Berry Bounty Nut Mix. Then, form the bars in a pan and refrigerate. Before leaving for your trip, slice the bars and wrap them in individual baggies.

Stuffed Apples

Apples and peanut butter are a classic combination. But, you can enjoy a fun twist by stuffing the peanut butter into the fruit. Starting with our Fuji apples, remove the core and seeds from the center. Then, add a heaping spoonful of peanut butter. Finally, finish your snack off with a sprinkle of chocolate chips and nuts from Our Finest Mixed Nuts Gift Tin.

Fruit and Cheese Kabobs

Kabobs are a simple way to transport an assortment of fruits and cheeses. Make this super simple snack ahead of time by cutting our Farmhouse Cheddar and Smoked Cheddar Blend into pieces. Then, thread the cheese on the kabobs along with slices of our Comice pears and other fruits from our Dried Fruit Collection.

Freezer Bag Ice Cream

Just because you don’t have a freezer doesn’t mean you can’t have ice cream. Start a new camping tradition by packing freezer bags filled with equal parts sugar and vanilla. When you’re ready to make the ice cream, place your sealed bags in larger bags with ice and rock salt. Then, shake until solid. You can top your icy treat with chopped nuts from our Colossal Cashews Gift Tin.

With these fun camping recipes featuring ingredients from our Hickory Farms gourmet fruits and nuts collection, you can enjoy healthy and homemade treats even while in the great outdoors.
