Sklup is a fudge-like concoction which is the most efficient and energy-dense snack food we've come up with.
The base ingredient is nutella, peanut butter, or some combination thereof.
A jar of raspberry jam is a good addition here, but adds a bit of extra water (unnecessary weight) to the recipe.
To this, we add a liberal quantity of dried fruit (cranberries are my favorite), nuts, and chocolate chips.Having a lot of chunks is key.
The final step is to stir in enough flour (or soy protein, or other appropriate powdered substance) to turn the goo solid enough to eat with the hands.
It's quite difficult to stir by the end.
Now, store in plastic ziploc bags, and eat by the handful.
As far as we know, this lasts forever - at least a couple months not refrigerated, and at least 6 months refrigerated.
Here's an example recipe, with calorie math.

ingredients with your hands. Mix in a few cups liquid (some water,
but can be supplemented with things like soy sauce, mustard, or
vinegar) until it barely sticks together, then knead until it isn't
crumbly anymore. Roll out as thin as you like (doesn't have to be
terribly thin), cut into pieces of desired shape, and put on a cookie
sheet. Bake at 325 until slightly browned on edges.
