I love chocolate. We are friends, chocolate & I. We go way back. That’s why when I was given the opportunity to create a recipe featuring Dove ® Fruits – Whole Cranberries in all their real fruit, chocolate covered goodness, I was more than happy to oblige. This chocolate & fruit pairing is pure perfection & I knew it would be a great addition to an easy, no-cook snack mix recipe. #LoveDoveFruits
I feel guilty even calling this a recipe, it’s that easy. I mean, you can really add in whatever you prefer. I just love dried pineapple in a snack mix, so this recipe uses it along with almonds, but you could use dried apricots, bananas, apples, whatever your heart desires.
INGREDIENTS
one package of lightly salted almonds (or any nut you like)
one package of dried pineapple (or any fruit you like)
two cups of Dove ® Fruits – Whole Cranberries (or the Whole Cherry version that will be released later this year)
one cup yogurt chips (not pictured)
DIRECTIONS
This has got to be the easiest recipe I have ever created. In a large bowl, toss all of your ingredients. Give them a good stir to mix everything up to ensure handfuls that hold a bit of each flavorful item.

This easy snack mix is perfect for back to school lunches or as a snack for Mom. It’s easily placed into little individual sized baggies or those cupcake holders that come in bento box lunches. Added bonus: it’s virtually mess free!

You can purchase Dove ® Fruits – Whole Cranberries in limited availability only at Sam’s Club where they will also have the Whole Cherries I mentioned above. Oh my, I cannot wait to try those out! These real fruit, dark chocolate covered cranberries are delicious & a better for you snack that you feel a little less guilty about devouring. 
This easy no-cook snack mix is wonderful. Look! Even Evelyn approves in all her curls gone wild glory!

What kinds of fruits do you like in your snack mix? Do you have a special ingredient you’d like to share with me? I’d love to hear more in the comments below!

    I’m a major fan of dried mango and apricots, so I would probably add those to my mix, but other than that – heck YES! It looks so delicious! #client

    HAHA! I wish we lived near a Sam’s Club. I might need you to send me some.
