We are always traveling. Whether on a 30 minute drive out to gymnastics class, a 3 hour road trip to visit relatives in Michigan, a weekend getaway, or an extended family vacation, we have become experts at food on-the-go.

When I recently came across the recipe for Mixed Up Munchies by Hormel Foods, I knew it would soon become a family favorite. It’s easy to make and is great finger food, which always travels well.
