White Trash-a little sweet, a little salty, a lot of yum!
OK, I know what you’re all thinking.
That’s not a very nice thing to say.
Well I didn’t say it first.
I’ve been making this stuff forever and when we moved to Georgia, hubby took some of this stuff to work and that’s what everyone there called it.
So I’m just repeating them. And so do my kids now.
But it’s good stuff.
And it makes sense to call this stuff trash since you basically throw everything in it, just like the trash.
I mean all that leftover, hanging around the house, maybe not enough to fill a snack bowl kinda stuff.
The only thing you have to have is some candy bark or candy melts
One of these type, you know candy coating. call it whatever you want. It’s what brings it all together.
Can you tell I stock up on this stuff? I pick it up whenever it’s on sale. It last for years, or so I’ve been told. It never lasts that long around here.
So you’ve got your candy coating, now go forage around your kitchen. You want some sweet and some salty stuff.
Cereal, pretzels, hard chips like Fritos or Bugles, peanuts, whatever you can find.
And for the sweet, I don’t care how much you bake, we all love Oreos. But you could use nilla wafers or whatever else you have laying around but you do want some cookies in this.
And also some candy, like M & Ms or candy corn, you know you have some stashed away
Place a piece of wax paper on a flat work surface (you can use a cookie tray, we just use the table)
It really doesn’t matter what order you put your items in but we always do biggest or heaviest to smallest.
cookies-broken up, be sure to eat one or two, just to make sure they’re fresh
Now place your candy coating in a container and melt according to directions
Now start drizzling your melted chocolate all over
Add in your small items
And walk away until chocolate is set.
Once set, break apart, package up as gifts in a jar
or just using the plastic party bags from the Dollar store.
A pretty ribbon can make all the difference.
Oh and remember the plastic spoon I told you to use….
Add a little colored sugar to it when your done and let it set up….
Makes a festive hot chocolate spoon for the kids!
