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

Easy WHITE TRASH CANDY recipe. For an easy treat, mix together cereal, pretzels, candy and melted white chocolate!

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.

  1. This is such a great way to empty the pantry of all those half open boxes of cereals and snacks!  And of course, it’s so irresistible so it disappears in a hurry!

  2. Such a fun recipe! It’s so easy that my kids can make it themselves with whatever cereal we have in the pantry. 🙂

  3. Looks delicious! I call my Texas Trash, try Chex Mix original, Trail Mix, M&Ms, pecans. Using the white Almond Bark mix together spread on foil paper. Once cooled and set, I put in small snack bags and give as gifts. Depending on the holiday I always use the M&M chocolate candies. Delish!
