In order to get a more caloric dense food list i'm thinking of making something like this:
Mix butter and chocolate
Line a pot with aluminum foil or cookie sheet
Add mixture of chopped nuts (hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans, almonds) and chopped dried fruits
Pour the chocolate-butter mixture over the nuts-fruit mixture
Put in fridge until solid
Cut into snack size pieces
Will this make a good energy bar or will it melt while on trail? I usually hike in fall so day time temperatures aren't that high.
