My family started the tradition of making White Trash a couple of years ago. I saw the recipe in a magazine and decided it would be easy to make, and it was! I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

White Trash Recipe

  • 6 cups Crispix cereal
  • 16 oz. M&M’s, I use regular, but you can substitute with whatever flavor you wish
  • 3 cups pretzels
  • 24 oz. vanilla flavored chocolate candy coating (aka almond bark)

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate in the microwave for 2-4 minutes at 30-second intervals, until melted. Set aside. In a large bowl mix the cereal, pretzels and M&M’s. Pour the melted chocolate over the cereal mixture and mix with a spatula until well coated. Pour out onto wax paper. We line the kitchen table with wax paper and pour it out there. Allow to dry and then break apart. Store in airtight containers.

Last year we gave White Trash as presents in cute little paper boxes wrapped with a bow. It was a huge hit!

  1. The White Trash recipe sounds delicious. I have made what they call puppy food before and I have really liked it. This is similar but different. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  2. I am one of the only people I know that doesn’t like “puppy chow” and it took me some time to warm up to chocolate covered pretzels. But gosh does this look good. The holidays are over but I think I should try this anyway!!

    1. Elle,

      Thanks for the comment.

      I’m actually going to make it for Valentine’s Day, maybe name it something with Cupid. I know M & M’s usually come out with Red/Pink/White so I’ll try that.
