3 Jerky Trail Mix Recipes You'll Obsess Over

There’s nothing like a handful of trail mix to refuel when you’re hungry, tired, and ready for the next leg of your adventure. With that familiar mixture of crunchy and chewy, sweet and salty, trail mix is a convenient and delicious way to get plenty of nutrients on the go. But most mixes stick to nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. Where’s the dried meat? Jerky adds an extra element of chewy, flavorful protein to any trail mix.

Chop up one of our beef jerky flavors to complement your nuts, fruits, and other trail mix staples next time you take off.  Here are a few of our favorite beef jerky trail mix recipes to get you started:

1. Hot Hot Hot Chocolate Trail Mix

Stay warm and energized all winter with this zesty trail mix, inspired by the rich and spicy decadence of Mexican hot cocoa. The darker the chocolate in your chocolate chips, the better it will complement the red chili peppers in our spiciest jerky.

2. Fruityaki Forest Trail Mix

Roasted nuts and dried fruits pair perfectly with the tangy sweetness of our Teriyaki jerky. Put together this Asian-inspired trail mix for a pleasant medley of flavors, and get creative with your fruit choices if you want to personalize your flavors.
