How has the beginning of the school year been treating you and your kids? Lately, our boys have been actively grazing our kitchen after school, appearing to be more hungry than ever. Sound familiar? They’d scour the pantry, cupboards, countertops, and dining table in search of a snack that appeals to their eyes as well as their palate. We’re always trying to uncover how these seemingly famished snack hunters could possibly have such a discriminating set of taste buds at the same time! Thankfully, they tend to willingly leave clues behind, especially when it comes to their favorite snacks and flavors. To keep things interesting in our kitchen, we like to mix and match things a bit–like with this 5-ingredient Rainbow Rocky Road Snack Mix recipe!
We decided to get creative with our kids’ favorite Goldfish® crackers, and here’s the thought process behind the creation:
What could possibly be better than “Rocky Road”?
Rainbow Rocky Road.
… And what better way to snack smarter than with Goldfish crackers, raw cacao nibs, walnuts, and fluffy marshmallows…
…and some fresh, organic blueberries on the side (because our kids had also requested for some fresh blueberries). A quick beeline to the fresh produce section at Walmart took care of that!
Recipe: Rainbow Rocky Road Snack Mix
Add some fun and color to your kids’ after school snacks with this 5-ingredient Rainbow Rocky Road Snack Mix recipe! Notice how we’re using “pint-sized” measurements since we like to use pint mason jars to store our ingredients. It’s just a lot easier for us that way (it keeps us organized)!

Total Time: 5 minutes (or less)

Your kids will have a blast making this simple recipe! Think about that smile each time you and your kids get to spend time making something fun and delicious together. It’s in these little moments–even something as simple as combining the ingredients in a mixing bowl–that the most precious memories are made, the sweetest smiles shared. There’s a lot to be said about the transformative power behind a little smile.
Of course, in order to keep our kids engaged in this delicious snack mix endeavor, we need to keep things simple, easy, and fun–without sacrificing flavor. Adding in their favorite Goldfish crackers was a no-brainer for us (after all, the brand purpose of Goldfish crackers is to spark joy, one smile at a time). It’s a win-win for parents and kids–the perfect solution for our kids’ snacking and mealtime recipes!
By the way, when you peruse the shelves at Walmart, you’ll notice that Goldfish crackers come in different flavors, sizes, and packages. We chose the bulk Goldfish crackers because they’re currently on rollback for $5.98* each.
