Tricky Trash Candy

I love trash candy.

You know, when you take a bunch of STUFF, mix it up and coat it in white chocolate.
These Halloween Oreo cookies are fun too! And make a perfect addition to Trash Candy!

I love that this makes a big bowl. And it’s so versatile, just mix in what you have!
And you can keep a big bowl for all your friends (or should I say your kids friends) to munch on! Okay fine…a big bowl for YOU to munch on during the day. Or night. Or middle of the night when you are craving something delicious!
