I would like to share a great sweet and salty snack with you. This recipe idea is everywhere and goes by a lot of names so for this post I will call it Autumn Crunch. You may have heard it called “White Trash.” See why I changed the name today? Honestly though, white trash isn’t far from the truth = mix white chocolate with whatever you have on hand. Oops, I just gave the recipe away-there is no real recipe.
I made this stuff twice this last week. The first time was just to have something to munch on. Two days later I didn’t think there was enough in the jar to take to a family get together so I made a second batch. Ok, two batches are too much!!! I did make the second batch with 1 ingredient switch from the first batch.
Here’s how I made the 1st batch of Autumn Crunch.
1- 16 oz. white chocolate/almond bark
1-12.6 oz M & M’s
2 cups pretzels
1 cup Cheerios
3 cups Crispix cereal
2 cups nuts
In a large bowl mix all of the dry ingredients together. Melt white chocolate in the microwave. I nuke for 30 seconds, stir and repeat until completely melted. Pour over cereal mix slowly as you fold it into the dry ingredients. Stirring can crush the cereal. Pour onto wax paper or a Silpat and wait to dry/set. Break up into pieces and store in an airtight container.
For the second batch: I substituted the almond bark for 2 bags of Ghirardelli’s white chocolate chips. And because the chips come in 11 oz. bags I added a little bit more cereal.
I prefer the mix with the almond bark but that’s just my taste. I took the Ghirardelli’s mix to a family get together and everyone loved it. This could be made with different types of cereal and candy. Seriously, I need to start giving away all these treats I make-I have a belly ache tonight as I type this post because I can’t keep my hand out of the jar. When will i learn?!?!
Do you make this snack? What do you call it?
Thanks for stopping by At Home with Sweet T!
