21 Snacks You Need to Make for Your Summer Road Trip

21 Snacks You Need to Make for Your Summer Road Trip

Rolled down windows, scenic views (or endless miles of highway), and the company of your friends or family is only improved by the snacks you bring along. And when you’ve been driving for hours on end, sometimes great nosh is the only way to keep morale high.

Here’s a list of recipes to bring all road trip snackage to another level. There’s a balance of sweet and salty and healthy and not-so-healthy, so make a variety of snacks and pack your bag for the best-fed road trip in history.

1. Salt and Vinegar Chickpeas

Skip the salt and vinegar potato chips from the gas station and make these. They have all the flavor of your favorite chips but have 15 grams of protein in each cup, so they’ll keep you full till that lunch stop.

And if you’re not into salt and vinegar, try turmeric roasted or cinnamon sugar.

2. No-Bake Oreo Cookie Butter Balls

After eating chickpeas it’s time to treat yo’ self. These puppies are sure to get the back seat excited and they only take 15 minutes of prep, so whip ’em up and put them in the freezer while you pack.

3. No-Bake Peanut Butter Bites

These are highly snackable, highly portable, and highly addictive. Use gluten free oats if you’ve got GF riders and keep them in a cooler to prevent melting on a hot day.

4. Flamin' Hot Cheetos Crispy Treats

Add a little spice to an otherwise cornfield-filled road trip. For all my last minute packers out there, these only take 10 minutes of prep. Whip ’em up and bring the whole pan in the car with you – I don’t think anyone will complain.

5. Ultimate Trail Mix

No trip is complete without trail mix, or as I like to call it, GORP. It’s easy to customize if you don’t like certain ingredients, and if you’re not a fan of recipes just throw some cereal, nuts, dried fruit, and M&Ms into a bag and call it a day.

Or if you swear you don’t like trail mix, go this route.

6. Ritz and Rolo Mini Sandwiches

You are one bag of Rolos, one box of Ritz crackers, and one full tank of gas away from adventure, my friend.These are crispy, chewy, salty, and whatever other adjectives you can think of. Oh yeah, and they travel well (if they even make it to the car).

8. Puppy Chow

Created in the Midwest, puppy chow is the pinnacle of snack foods. Sweet, salty, and crunchy, it’s like trail mix on steroids. The first bag will be gone before your first rest stop, so make all 3 versions in order to keep everyone happy all ride long. You’ve been warned.

9. Homemade Crunchy Granola

Granola is a go-to snack for a reason. It’s portable, delicious, and has a ton of variations. Make a batch and go nuts.

10. Granola Bars

While you’re on it with the granola you might as well make granola bars, too. These are a lot healthier than the store bought ones that are loaded sugar.

11. Pepperoni Chips

These crunchy pepperoni chips are the best part of pizza, now on your road trip. They’re also paleo, if you’re into that whole caveman thing.

12. Honey Mustard Pretzels

Wow everyone in the car with these homemade beauties. Plus part of the recipe is shaking the sauce and pretzels together in the bag, which is reason enough to make them.

13. Almond Butter Oat Protein Energy Balls

Just because you’re on a road trip doesn’t mean you should slack on your swoleness.

14. 2- Ingredient Dulce de Leche Rice Krispies

Sorry store-bought, you just got passed. Also to the slow driver on the highway, you just got passed.

15. Edamame Hummus

Road trips tend to be light on the veggie side (mostly because who actually wants to eat vegetables?) but sometimes you need a little veg after a greasy highway pit stop lunch.

Store this hummus in your cooler and tread lightly when serving a chip of it to your driver — we’re all about hummus in your tummy not on your interior.

16. Asian Chex Mix

This delicious twist on Chex Mix only takes 20 minutes to make and stores well in an air-tight container #roadtripready

17. No bake 4- Ingredient Dark Chocolate Coconut Bars

Damn these pair well with the piña coladas you’ll treat yourself to when you finally get to your destination. The thick layer of chocolate on these bars make them another snack to stash in the cooler.

18. Chocolate Covered Strawberries

Speaking of chocolate, few snacks are as refreshing and mouth-watering as chocolate covered strawberries. They’re simple to make at home, just make sure not to get any water in the melted chocolate (dry spoons, people) or it’ll seize and look funky.

Again, cooler. It’s worth it.

19. Homemade Cool Ranch Doritos

What’s cooler on a hot summer day than Cool Ranch Doritos? Homemade Cool Ranch Doritos, that’s what. And Jennifer Lawrence would definitely approve.

20. Funfetti Cake Balls

Because you can never, never have enough cake balls. We’re talking about survival here, people

21. Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mic drop.

#SpoonTip: Put a piece of bread in the container with your cookies to keep them soft.

20+ Road Trip Must-Haves

If your summer vacation plans include a few hours (or 10) in the car, you're gonna wanna pack these on-the-go essentials!

No matter how well you may think you know the roads, it never hurts to have a little help. With the social traffic and navigation app Waze (available for iPhone, Android, and BlackBerry), you'll be getting more than just directions. This free app allows other drivers in your network to report traffic jams or accidents, so you'll receive real-time updates at every turn.

When you're constantly tossing bags in and out of the car, they better be able to handle plenty of abuse. The durable North Face Hot Shot Backpack is water-resistant and has plenty of compartments for a portable speaker, games, and other road trip essentials. ($84, amazon.com)

With the Rubbermaid 50 Quart Cooler, you won't have to worry about your drinks and snacks getting warm. Packed with 25 pounds of ice, this split-top cooler will keep food cold for more than 12 hours. It also comes with large wheels, so you can easily cart it to a campsite or the beach. ($47, amazon.com)

If you rely on your morning coffee to get you through the day, take it on the road with the Oxo Good Grips LiquiSeal Travel Mug. And no need to fret about annoying bumps in the road &mdash this beverage container won't leak or spill as long as the lid is closed. ($20, amazon.com)

For all those times you're out and about instead of sitting in the car, slip into comfortable shoes with a minimal design like Easy Spirit's Reinvent Walking Sneakers. The mesh upper and stretch lining of this lightweight shoe conforms to your foot, making it feel like you're wearing slippers instead of clunky tennis shoes. ($99, amazon.com)

Throwing clothes in the washer at a moment's notice isn't an option on the road. Prepare yourself for any spills that come your way with Tide-To-Go Instant Stain Remover. This pocket-sized pen will completely remove soda, fruit juice, and coffee stains from fabrics. It even works on silk! ($4, amazon.com)

This Good Housekeeping-Seal holder keeps your car smelling fresh &mdash no matter how many spills and crumbs you rack up on the road. Just add these easy-to-use clips to your car's vents, and voila. It's also a breeze to control the intensity via a dial on the top. ($6, amazon.com)

Better suited for the car than hard cardboard boxes, these tissues packs can be tucked in a glove compartment or in a door or seatback pouch without crushing. And, the water-resistant outer pack keeps the tissues clean and dry. ($9 for 2, amazon.com)

As long as they aren't fried, corn nuts are a secret superfood! Toss a bag in the car, or go for another pop-able driving snack like dry, roasted chickpeas. You'll find them at most rest stops, and with lots fiber and protein they'll stave off cravings between meals. ($9, amazon.com )

Satisfy a sweet tooth with 1.5 ounces of honey-roasted peanuts. They're only about 4 grams of sugar per serving but will kick a candy craving. The trick is that the sugar (or salt, for the savory versions) is just on the surface, so they only taste more flavorful. ($17 for 2, amazon.com)

The soft-sided walls of the bag have built-in freezable gel, so you can pop the empty bag in the freezer the night before your outing to help your snacks stay cold throughout the morning. ($32, amazon.com)

Our taste-test winner is available in single-serving bags at most gas stations &mdash it's super satisfying and just 160 calories per a 1-ounce bag. ($23 for 25, amazon.com)

Simple Green's auto cleaner cuts through dirt, grime and grease (even bugs!) to leave your car with a polished, streak-free shine. Use it on everything from SUVs and trucks to motorhomes and ATVs. ($5, amazon.com)

Magic Tank is a genius $20 solution to extend a (near) empty gas tank. It's a non-flammable liquid that you can safely store in your car and use in any gas-powered engine. It basically helps get what gas is left in your car's reservoir, so note that it's not meant to replace traditional fuel, just serve as an insurance policy.
