My top fave for the holiday season, this White Trash recipe combines two of my favourite indulgences - white chocolate and cereal.


  • Cheerios cereal
  • Chex cereal
  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Chocolate Chips {regular and white chocolate}
  • ** Optional: package of Smarties or M&M’s


  1. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave while you dump the cereals and pretzels {and candy if you wish} into a big bowl.
  2. As soon as the white chocolate is melted, pour over cereal and mix until well coated {the more white chocolate the merrier, I have found}.
  3. Spread the mixture on wax paper and leave to dry.
  4. Melt a small amount of chocolate and drizzle over the top as desired.
  5. Once cooled, break-up and store in resealable containers or bags.

  1. ohmigosh! That looks SO yummy, and easy. Kinda like the candy corn bark I make for fall. And this recipe is probably safe for my daughter, too, since she can have all those the ingredients (nut allergy). YUM! Thanks for sharing!

    1. It’s hard to find a non-nut recipe this time of year, isn’t it? Some you can omit, but others aren’t as good without. This is divine!! 🙂

  2. It’s a good idea to send to school also. They always have a breakfast before Christmas. I think it counts as breakfast food since there is cereal in it 😉

  3. This is such a great idea! I can’t belive I have never heard of this before. Im going to make a batch for my husband to take to work!

  4. We call ours clodhoppers, and add golden grahams to ours! I always make extra and take to daycare for all the workers, it is always the first snack gone!

  5. I made this last night – wow, you are not kidding. Easy and the best treat ever!

  19. The title of this one caught my eye…PINNED! I like how you said that Smarties or M&Ms were optional….as if. You’re funny.

  20. Must admit I have eaten cereal since I was a child because of the high salt and sugar content – our mother used to combine them with hot chocolate and cool them – lovely

  21. I love that this is called White trash! I want to make it and give it out to people just so i can tell them the name of it – for a Christmas Theme – you could call it Melted Snow – because it looks like when the snow starts to melt and all the stuff that was on the ground before the pretty white snow covered it, starts to show again! LOL I love this and i am so making some! Thanks for the post! 🙂
