I love to bake and have a few items that I equate with Christmas. I am going to share those recipes with you in a series of posts and hope they become favorites of yours too!
White Trash (Don’t knock the name – you will see why)
- Pretzel Sticks
- Corn Chex Mix
- Rice Chex Mix
- Wheat Chex Mix (optional)
- Holiday M&M Plain
- Holiday M&M Peanut
- White Chocolate Morsels (for a sweeter taste work with two bags)
- Sauce pan with 1 1/2 cups of water
- Mixing bowl
- Heat resistant bowl
- Double Boiler
- Microwave Safe Bowl
- Wax Paper
- Silicone Mats
Combine ingredients (except morsels) together in a large bowl. Amount varies. (I use the whole bag of M&Ms and about 3/4 of the pretzels. I use 1/2 bag of each Chex Mix. This will produce a large batch of the mix.) Set aside.
Prepare area for mix to cool. Layer wax paper sheets in 2 feet or so cuts. You can substitute this for silicone mats.
On stove top heat sauce pan/water on low and place heat resistant bowl on top. Add bag of morsels to the bowl and continue to stir. Once morsels or melted remove from heat. *Apply chocolate to the combined ingredients and stir. You can also use your hands to mix evenly. (Note: if you use your hands it will be messy)*
On stove top melt the morsels with the double broiler. Continue with directions in *…*
Add half the bag of morsels to the heat resistant bowl and place in microwave for one minute. Remove bowl and stir morsels. If consistency is not smooth return it to the microwave without the stir stick and add 15 seconds. Continue to add 15 seconds until you get smooth consistency. Add 1/4 of remaining mixture to bowl and stir. Add remaining morsels and stir. Continue with directions in *…*
After mixture is combined lay flat on wax paper or silicone mats to cool. Mix can be stored in freezer, refrigerated, or kept at room temperature.
A mostly sweet and savory mix!
I don’t know the nutritional value, but I do know you should not eat the whole thing – LOL!
