Christmas White Trash


I am going stop baking and go ahead and post my Christmas White Trash recipe. I have had several request for the recipe and it is so quick and easy to make.

This trash is an all time family favorite. I make it for, 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.

You can find this recipe at Weekend Potluck and others at these wonderful linky parties here!  

Christmas White Trash

Ingredients:
24 oz. vanilla flavored candy coating (almond bark)
6 cups Kellogg's Crispix cereal
3 cups Christmas shaped pretzels
16 oz. M&M'S Peanut Butter Chocolate Candies, or Peanut Chocolate Candies, or Plain Chocolate Candies in Christmas Colors

Directions:
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 or bag up in gift bags.

  2. I would never have imagined that cereal could go so well with the chocolate and peanut butter for this recipe. This is what I probably want to have this Christmas.

  16. Hi K! I just wanted to let you know that your white trash was featured on Foodie Friday today! It reminded me so much of what my Mom made when I was younger. The only real difference is she used Chex instead of Crispix. So I had to share this one with everybody. Thank you again for linking it up!
