Christmas White Trash

This is one of our favorite Christmas treats. It is so easy to make and has all of the right components. It has a little salty, a little sweet, and lots of chocolate. This may be my husband's favorite Christmas treat of all, which is why I am sharing it first.

It isn't Christmas without Holiday baking. I spent the entire past weekend in the kitchen making all types of Christmas treats, so I am going to hold off on some of the savory, delicious, recipes I have been making for dinner and share all of these treats with you. They are perfect to wrap up and give to your neighbor, hair stylist, mail-man, trash-man, best friends, co-workers, and family. This Christmas White Trash is a favorite with everyone and a classic.

24 oz. Vanilla Almond Bark
6 Cups of Rice Chex
3 cups of Pretzels
16 oz. of Peanut M&M's

First, line a cookie sheet with wax paper. Set aside.

Now, in a large bowl add the chex, pretzels, and m&m's together. Set aside.

Next, in a microwave-safe  bowl, heat the bark on high for 45 seconds, stir, and then on high for 1.5 minutes. Stir well.

Now, pour the melted bark over the chex, pretzels, and m&m's. Fold the chocolate over each piece, until well coated.

Finally, pour the mixture onto your lined cookie sheet and let harden, you can place in the freezer to speed up the process. Once the mixture has harden, break into pieces and store in an air-tight container.


Happy Cooking,
