I've tried calling this snack something else, but it just doesn't feel right. White trash is the perfect name for this delicious concoction because it basically is that. A ramble of ingredients covered in white chocolate. So while the name may be less than pleasant, believe me when I say it is definitely worth making. Pretty soon you'll be telling your neighbors how much you love white trash, and won't even care when they give you the "ooookkkaaayyyy" side eye. It's that good.
Here's what you'll need (measure, shmeasure, we just grab handfulls of everything).
--->Chex cereal (corn, rice, wheat, whatever strikes your fancy)
--->M&M's (God Bless the creator of red & green holiday bags)
--->Salted peanuts (cashews would also be delicious)
--->A bag (or two) of white chocolate chips
Get yourself a ginormous bowl and mix all the dry ingredients together. Like I said, we just estimate on amounts but it usually comes out to half a box of cheerios, a whole box of Chex, the whole container of peanuts, the whole bag of M&M's, and half the bag of pretzels.
Now melt the chocolate chips in the microwave (one bag usually take 45-60 seconds), and then pour all over the dry goodies. Mix together, and lay it all out to dry on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper. It'll take about 20-30 minutes to dry. Then break it up and voila, the very best (and easiest) Christmas snack.
What's your favorite Christmas snack? And please do feel free to leave recipes, because my jeans just aren't quite as tight as they probably should be this time of year.
