|White trash snack mix. Lucy Mercer/ A Cook and Her Books|
This "white trash" snack mix is Chex cereals, cracker sticks (or "stix" if you're into cracked-up snack cracker lingo) and peanuts coated in white chocolate. Pretzels are also good in this recipe. This snack mix is addictive in that sweet-salty-chocolatey way. The recipe makes boo-koos, too, so there's plenty to share.
White Trash Snack Mix
3 cups Wheat Chex
3 cups Rice Chex
6 oz. lightly salted roasted peanuts
1 (8 oz.) package Wheat Thins Stix, Honey Wheat variety
12 ounces white chocolate bark
1. In a large bowl, pour in cereal, peanuts and crackers. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat, wax paper or parchment paper.
2. In a microwave-safe bowl, place chocolate bark. Place in microwave and zap for 1 minute at 50 percent power. Remove, and stir chocolate. Zap again for 30 seconds at 50 percent power, remove and stir. Repeat, until chocolate is completely melted. Stir until all lumps are removed.
3. Pour melted chocolate over cereal and nuts, stir to coat. Spoon mixture onto wax paper-lined baking sheet. Let cool, then store in airtight containers at room temperature.
