The arrival of fall comes with the need for a whole new roster of snacks. Now there are packable school snacks, after-school snacks, soccer-practice snacks, and weekend apple-picking snacks to think about. These 20 recipes fit the bill in all of these situations and more. They lean sweet, salty, or both, depending on your mood of the moment.
