Dark Chocolate Trail Mix Energy Bites

These bite-sized and easy to make Dark Chocolate Trail Mix Bites are the road trip snack or afternoon pick-me-up!

I participated in Mom Blog Tour Sweets & Snacks Expo (#MomBlogTourFF) on behalf of Wendy’s Bloggers. I received Power Up products to facilitate my post, but my opinion and creative content are my own.
I will be the first to admit that I am the person that picks all the nuts and chocolate out of a trail mix and leaves the rest for someone else. Guilty as charged! What can I say I love the sweet and salty mix. That was until recently when I started broadening my horizons and trying new things food-wise.
It all started with my Fruity Nutty Salad with dried cranberries. I was so hooked on them that I found myself eating them by the handful. Which brings me to no longer picking through my trail mix.
Trail mix is great when you are on the go whether you are camping or going on a road trip or headed to the ball fields. Of course, I can just grab a bag and go but I needed something for when my sweet tooth was really calling me.
Dark chocolate is good for your heart and has antioxidants so naturally I paired this with Power Up’s Antioxidant Trail Mix. But you can use any of Power Up’s variety of mixes to customize your energy bites!

This is hands down one of the easiest desserts,  pre/post workout snack, game day or road trip snacks to make! Simply melt your favorite dark chocolate chips and pair it with any of Power Up Snack’s Trail Mixes.

  2. On a piece of wax paper make chocolate circles with a spoon (about the size of a quarter).
  3. Place the trail mix on top of the chocolate drops. Press them down into the chocolate lightly. Top with sea salt.
