Alton Brown's White Trash

OK...I must say this stuff is AMAZING!!! So easy to make and rather addictive. It is the perfect addition to your Christmas gift baskets, too. I first had at at Christmastime in December 2011. I was visiting with my BFF, Deb. We were working on a rather difficult puzzle and we were in need of sustenance. Well, she had some of this on hand and so she shared it with me. I found myself reaching for more over and over again. I was IN LOVE with the flavors - the sweet mixed with the salty! I asked her what it was and she said it was something called White Trash, but that's all she knew about it, as her sister-in-law sends it to her for Christmas every year. The name was all I needed to ferret out the recipe! A little tickle into the GGM (Great Google Machine) and this recipe popped up. If you want to impress friends, just bring this to your next Bunco or Bridge game. You will be the star of the show!

Alton Brown's White Trash
3 1/2 cups Cheerios toasted oat cereal (I like the Honey Nut Cheerios)
3 cups Rice Chex
3 cups Corn Chex
16 oz M&M's plain chocolate candy
2 1/2 cups salted mixed nuts
2 cups small pretzels
2 (11 oz) pakcages white chocolate chips (Ghirardelli brand preferred)

Dump the cereals, M&Ms, nuts & pretzels in a large bowl.

Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler very slowly, stirring occasionally, being careful not to burn the chocolate (you can also use microwave but I don't like using one at all).

Dump melted chocolate over the rest of the ingredients and fold over and over until you have well-coated hunks and chunks.

Spread the whole mess out on parchment paper and set in a cool place until it sets up, then break it into pieces. Store in zip-top bags or air-tight containers.

I was actually excited enough to leave a thought ;) I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don't mind.

  3. Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations? Thank you!
