So yesterday my newborn daughter turned one month old. I’m literally counting the days until she becomes three month old, when everything gets a little bit easier. As I learned from my first daughter, babies digest easier, sleep better, and are just generally more fun to be around when they pass that three month mark. In the meantime, I’m in survival mode. Some time for cleaning here, catching up on emails there, maybe a chance to make a homemade meal if the baby cooperates? Oh and spend time with my older daughter too.
In between all of these mommy jobs, I’ve been trying to steal away moments to myself. Sitting out in the sun with my five year old while the baby is sleeping… catching up on tv late at night…or reading blogs while I feed the baby. So when I got the chance to treat myself to a coca cola bottle, I knew I had to throw together an easy and tasty snack for my readers (and possibly fellow moms!) to enjoy in your “me time”.
Perfect summer beverage.
I picked up my Diet Coke at Walmart… they have a separate cooler for the individual, 20 oz. Coca Cola bottles.
So what’s the perfect snack to enjoy with a Diet Coke? Chocolate-covered trail mix, of course!
Tasty & filling! Between the Coke and the white chocolate bark, I didn’t have that five o’clock drag that happens when you get 2-3 hours of sleep at a time. Oy.
Seriously guys, so easy and delicious. And definitely some antioxidants in there.
White Chocolate Trail Mix Bark
1 bag (6 oz.) white chocolate chips (or milk chocolate, if you prefer)
2 cups trail mix (sunflower seeds, almonds, dried fruit, etc.)
1. Microwave chocolate chips in a glass dish, 30 seconds at a time until melted (I use a glass measuring cup, easy to pour)
2. Pour out melted chocolate onto smooth surface, such as a baking sheet. Use a spatula or the back of a spoon to spread the chocolate to about a 1/4″ thickness.
3. Top with trail mix.
4. Let cool, then break apart and enjoy!
