White Trash

I have to bring a snack for the band concert tonight. I thought about making cookies (and I will,, but that's tomorrow!) but I decided to whip up a batch of White Trash. I always forget just how much this recipe makes! Wow.... just.... wow. You could divide the recipe in half but then you'll be stuck with a crapload of weird cereal so I just do the whole thing.

What is White Trash? I'll show ya! I'm not the Pioneer Woman but I'll give it a shot!

The cast of characters- I should have taken a picture. I'll try harder next time!

1 box of Rice Chex

1 box of Corn Chex

1 box of Wheat Chex

1 box of Cheerios

1 jar of dry roasted peanuts

1lb bag of M&Ms

1 bag of pretzle sticks (I used Roll'd Gold Holiday Shapes this time. CUTE!)

3 blocks of almond bark (this is NOT diet food people!)

1 bag of colored candy melts (optional)

Please feel free to use generic ingrediants, I did and it ROCKS.

Ok, step one. Mix up all the dry ingrediants. You are going to need HUGE bowls. Really,, the bathtub might be a good option. I'm kidding of course..... maybe.

Line a large surface with wax paper, if you're not a spaz,, you could even do this on the floor. I'm a spaz.

Melt one block of the bark. Don't melt it all, it'll set up and you'll cry. Just melt what you can use right away. Put some of the dry mix in a workable bowl and add a little "chocolate". Toss to coat. I found that one giant handful (both hands) of mix in the bowl to 2 heaping spoonfuls of the melted goodness was a good working ratio.

After you have it coated well, dump it out on the wax paper and spread it out a bit,, not too much. Leave it kinda clumpy.

Like I said,, this recipe makes A LOT.

After the white chocolate sets up and you can touch it, break it up and mix it around. The next thing I do is melt some red (or green, or orange for Halloween, or pink for Easter) candy melts and drizzle it over the entire mess. Here's a close up.

Break it up and put it in gallon bags. Beware this stuff is REALLY addictive. You'll eat yourself sick. It's REALLY GOOD!

Holy cow!! I've made white trash before, but it's always been in 1 cup ratios of things, lol. And I always just used one bag of white chocolate chips rather than almond bark.

You are so right about it being addictive though. Mmmmm. It's the perfect PMS food too - crunchy, salty, sweet, chocolatey - mmmm. OK, I'm going to have to make some of this now.

Oh my gosh, that looks so good right now. I just know that I'd be the one eating it all, though.
