Of course, I took full advantage of sending out Old Bay and some other Maryland foods, but I was thrilled with what I got back. Not only did I get TWO different types of beef jerky (which is a huge weakness of mine) but I also got this cute little bag of stuffed called Texas Trash.
It was like crack in a bag. White chocolate, pretzels, cereal, candy and nuts all mixed together into this incredible combination. Once you ate a bite of it, you couldn’t put it back down. Somehow, I exerted all control I maintained and made an 8 oz. bag last a week. It was hard!!
So when we planned on having a bunch of people over, I jumped on the chance to make this, figuring I could package it up in cute little bags and hand them out at the end of the night. Except, I forgot that I wanted to keep the package so I could use the exact ingredients.
I googled “texas trash” and found lots of interesting things, but nothing that was quite like the mixture I had received. After a bit more hunting, I came across Alton Brown’s White Trash recipe and figured that was the closest I was going to get, so I decided to modify it up a bit.
- 1 large box corn Chex cereal
- 16 oz. plain chocolate M&M’s candy
- 2 cups small pretzels
- 2 cups mixed nuts
- 12 oz. white bakers chocolate
1. Combine the Chex, M&M’s, pretzels and nuts together in a large bowl.
2. Melt the chocolate and stir until smooth. Pour the chocolate into the bowl and toss well with a rubber spatula to coat.
3. Spread the mixture out onto parchment lined large cookie sheets and let set for 1-2 hours or until no longer sticky.
4. Break the mixture up and package into individual servings, or place into a sealable container until ready to serve.
Keeps for 1 week.
