White Trash, A sweet treat for gift giving.

A sweet and salty concoction, this treat is commonly known as white trash. Personally, I don’t like that name much, but I do like to snacking on this delicious mix.

Here’s the basic recipe;
In a large bowl mix together,
3 ½ cups honey nut cheerios
3 cups rice chex
3 cups wheat chex
1 lb. m & m’s, Christmas colors
2 ½ cups salted nuts
2 ½ cups mini pretzels
Then stir in in melted white chocolate. I used 4- 12oz. bags of white morsels.

You can alter this recipe to use ingredients you like, any kind of cheerios or chex and whatever type of nuts you prefer. After it’s mixed together, lay it out on cookie sheets to dry.

I found some clear bags and white boxes to package up the mix for gift giving.

I wanted to line the box with parchment but used wax paper because I was out of parchment paper.

I folded it up neatly, added a Christmas sticker and tied it up in a pretty ribbon.

The bags look so festive tied up with ribbon and are all ready to give to neighbors and friends.

This recipe gave me 6, 8 ounce bags and 1, 24 ounce box of candy.
Do you make sweet treats to give as gifts? I know I sure like anything home made!
Merry Christmas!

    That's a delicious looking and sounding variation on an old favorite. I think I might even have most of the ingredients for this one. Thanks for the recipe!

    Debbie,
    I have been making this for a few years now and it's always a BIG hit!!! I do add marshmellows to mine. Making some later today for some gifts and made it for the Open House at the shop and everyone loved it!

    Blessings,
    Linda
