Nuts - my faves are cashews and almonds. It's best to use un-salted unless you're hiking where there's lots of water available. Also, salted nuts can make the chocolate salty which is a little odd.
Chocolate - from a solid block, broken up into small pieces.
Dried fruit - sultanas and/or raisins are a must, but dried apricots, apple etc. are great too.

You can really add anything you want.
Other ideas might include: pieces of apricot slice, gummies, crystalised orange peel, crystalised ginger (with or without chocolate coating), and hard lollies like barley-sugar.

Mix any/all of the ingrdients in a bag, place in your pack or pocket and take for nibbling on any hike, long or small, summer or winter.
