A few years ago Alton Brown tweeted a copy of his mother's White Trash Mix recipe. I saved the tweet to make at a later date. That date finally rolled around, and I'm wondering why I waited so long!
This White Trash Mix is basically a white chocolate chex mix. It is Chex cereal, Cheerios, M&Ms, mixed nuts tossed in white chocolate. It is also highly addictive! We could not stop eating this!! This only takes about 5 minutes to whip up. It makes a ton! This White Trash Mix would be great at a party and also makes great teacher/co-worker/neighbor gifts.
