The next recipe calls my name for sheer volume of chocolate that’s involved.  These will cut, pack and snack well in the great outdoors.

When it comes to the outdoors and “stash and carry” items for munching, sometimes pure simplicity is the only answer.  Grapes, strawberries, cherries, apples, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries or cubes of melon.  When you turn to nature for your menu, the possibilities are quick, nutritional and endless.
