Plant-based Picnic Snacker Box
Recipe Intro From lisathompson

These whimsical little snacker boxes provide the perfect portion for your next picnic or beach outing. Here, we used eco-friendly paper boxes with lids, bamboo fiber cups, and recycled paper cupcake liners as the vessels for store-bought dips and nuts. Packed with plenty of hearty Mary's Gone Crackers, these boxes have the perfect balance of crunchy, sweet, savory, and salty snacks, all while remaining organic, plant-based, and gluten-free so everyone can enjoy! Feel free to swap components for more seasonal options or to suit your preferences. This recipe makes enough for 2 boxes, but easily scales up to match the size of your gathering.
