Have you made trash candy before? Okay, the real name is White Trash candy. That’s so wrong, right?

This candy is so easy and versatile to make. I’ve said it before, but my kids eat a lot of cereal. And there is always a cup of cereal left in the bottom of the containers or bags that nobody eats. I think they are afraid if they pour the last of the cereal in their bowl, they will get the crumbs too.

I think the REAL reason is my kids don’t want to be the one responsible for breaking down the box and putting it in recycling. I am on to them!

But maybe. Just maybe they know deep down if there is cereal left in those boxes I will combine it with some candy and pretzels and cover it in white chocolate.

Yep, that’s how White Trash Candy is born. Seriously…just add whatever you already have in your pantry. It makes a HUGE bowl too, so it’s perfect when you have company over and don’t feel like making treats. Just whip up a quick batch of this Trash Candy. And of course I am such a sucker to the seasonal aisle in the grocery store, so I always have some fun Holiday candy to toss in! This would be cute for Easter too!

  1. I had a similar recipe that I was given about 20 years ago. I could no longer find it so I am glad that I found yours. The only thing is mine was called Sinful Stuff and mine and yours is that it is so Sinful because you cannot stop eating it. I especially like you Peanut Butter Lovers version. Thanks.

    PS: My youngest daughter’s name is Aimee and I love the spelling of this.

  2. You definitely had me with the peanut butter. Unfortunately, I’m quite sure I could finish a whole bowl of this all by myself. 🙂

  3. Luv this idea! I absolutely dislike the crumbs on the bottom of the cereal box as well since I like my cereal still crunchy but the crumbs turn soggy right away. Perfect for my husband 😉 But using them to make candy treats sounds even better.

  4. Are you related with my husband. He NEVER eats the last serving of cereals from the bag and the same for the milk, if there’s less than 1 glass, he’ll open another carton.
    This trash candy sounds pretty addictive!

  5. Aimee this is the prettiest type of trash I’ve ever seen 😉 and the colors go so well with Easter coming up! Pre-Easter Snackage here I come.

  6. Such a quick and easy to way to use up all the scrap cereal and candy bits– great idea!
