Alton Brown's White Trash

Alton once posted this on his website and said that he always cranks out a bushel or two of it during the holidays. He also said "Dole this stuff out carefully. It is highly habit forming." I totally agree and for this reason have no earthly idea how many servings it makes! Depends on how much you can eat! LOL Especially good to anyone who likes the salty-sweet combination.

Directions

  1. Dump the cereals, M&Ms, nuts & pretzels in a large bowl.
  2. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler. Melt very slowly, stirring occasionally, being careful not to burn the chocolate.
  3. Dump melted chocolate over the rest of the ingredients and fold over and over until you have well-coated hunks and chunks.
  4. Spread the whole mess out on parchment paper and set in a cool place until it sets up, then break it into pieces.
  5. Store in zip-top bags or air-tight containers.

Most Helpful Review

To make it more "adult" omit the peanuts and M&M's and instead add dried cranberries and cashews. The cranberries add a tartness that's really good with the sweet and salty. See all activity
