What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

White Trash


This is a SUPER easy and SUPER yummy snack to fix for anytime. I can tell you though, it is especially appreciated by people who have been traveling a ways to be welcomed by this delicious mix.

I used:

Cheerios
Crispix (or Chex)
Broken up pretzels
Peanuts
Raisins
Chocolate chips
a bit of Heath brittle
and then added Rainbow Sprinkles for color

2 T. shortening or oil
1 bag of white chocolate chips or equivalent bars

Melt the chocolate and shortening in a double boiler (or microwave).
Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Don't measure out-just fill the large bowl 3/4 up or so with your favorite ingredients-add more later if necessary.

When chocolate is melted, pour over dry ingredients and mix until well coated. Layer onto a cookie sheet lined with wax paper and allow to harden. When chocolate is hardened, break into pieces and enjoy.

Note: DO NOT let this recipe BOX YOU IN! Use what you have on hand or what you LOVE to make this delicious. Use M&M's instead of chocolate chips, use Frosted flakes instead of cheerios. Use what you have and what you love. The idea is that it is covered in white chocolate. Trust me, with chocolate involved-it CAN'T taste anything but delicious! :-)

I made some for Bob today, and it still wasn't as good as yours, for I should have used more white chocolate, less cereal, no m&m's and no butterscotch chips (I did half regular, and half with a little bit of butterscotch chips mixed in) This was according to Bob! Ah well, someday MAYBE just MAYBE I'll make something he'll like as much as my sisters, or his own!

You're kidding me! He didn't like it more with butterscotch and M&M's? He is one crazy bird, I'll tell ya. Matt would've liked yours better. Me too, for that matter....

Hey just think of it this way-more for you! ;-)
