White Trash Candy…open your pantry, dump a bunch of salty and sweets together, cover in white chocolate and BOOM. 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 no bake candy….although I will tell you I never make it the same way twice!
How to make White Trash Candy
In a very large mixing bowl combine cereal and candy.
I like to use Froot Loops, pretzels, Cheerios, Cocoa Puffs, and M&M’s.
Melt white chocolate according to package directions. I usually opt for Ghirardelli White Chocolate Melting wafers. They taste amazing and melt beautifully.
Pour melted chocolate over the cereal mixture. Gently mix until covered.
Pour onto parchment paper on the counter top. Let harden (about 15 minute). Store in airtight container at room temperature.
