White Trash Candy
**photos updated April 2017**
This past weekend we went to Great Wolf Lodge. It was like being on vacation, even though we were only 15 minutes from home. What made it a vacation? Well, the money we spent, the number of pictures I took on my camera, and of course the people watching. I admit, I people watch.
Here’s the thing. I think I admitted this a few years ago on this blog that everyone who camps is white trash (whatever this term means?). Myself included. That’s the great thing about camping. We are all at our most vulnerable…dirty, smelly, hair a mess, no makeup, we all hang our “white trash beacons” (aka outdoor lights) to our campers, we sit in the dirt with our campfire and then go to bed in those same dirty feet, our kids run and scream like they don’t have parents….I love it. Funny thing is though…we saw some of this in the hotel this weekend!?!?
How this inspired me to make white trash candy…well, you figure that out.
Now, to the candy. This is the most versatile candy you can make. Basically, open up your pantry and see what you have, coat it in white chocolate, put it in a bowl, and tell everyone to come eat some candy. Of course, don’t grab pasta noodles and rice, that might not taste so good.
Here is what I put in my candy….although I will tell you I never make it the same way twice!
