Valentine's Day Trash I made for Valentines. I am so behind on my blog post that I am determined to catch up. This trash is an all time family favorite. I make it for Christmas, Valentine's, Easter, and whenever there is something to celebrate. The basic recipe for the trash is the same each time. I just change the color of the M&Ms for what we are celebrating. For Valentine's I use the cute pink, red, and white M&Ms. This makes a great treat to give as gifts in little holiday bags also.
24 oz. vanilla flavored candy coating (almond bark)
6 cups Kellogg's Crispix cereal
3 cups round shaped pretzels
16 oz. M&M'S Peanut Chocolate Candies in Valentine Colors or plain M&M's
In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate in the microwave for 2-4 minutes at 30 SECOND intervals until chocolate is melted; set aside. In a large bowl, add cereal, pretzels, and M&Ms. Pour melted chocolate over the cereal mixture. Using a large spatula to fold all together making sure not to break up the cereal to much. Once all the mixture is coated real well with the chocolate, pour out onto a table lined with waxed paper. Once cooled, break up into piece and store in an air tight container.
