Not Quite White Trash Candy

One of my favorite blogs is Shugary Sweets .  Just the other day, I was reading Shugary Sweets and this recipe for White Trash Candy pops up.  Mmmm...  I like White Trash Candy

I think it's kind of like chili.  Every family has their own recipe.  Basically, you dig through your cabinets and anything that might be tastey with white chocolate melted over it, well, you dump it in a bowl and pour white chocolate over it.  Slap that on wax paper until cool.  Call it candy and eat.   

So, all inspired, I mosey to the kitchen to make some and...  Oh, my!  We don't have white chocolate or almond bark!!  I know, right?!  I mean, seriously, how does that happen?! 

After muttering grumpy grumbles, I realize we do have semi sweet chocolate chips and peanut butter chips!  My Ozark Mountain indignation ebs and creativity begins.  Here's what worked for me even though it is not actually "white". 

1 cup almonds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

OK, gang, throw the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and zap for a couple of minutes.  When it comes out, stir and pour over Triscuit crackers (or whatever you have) on wax paper.  Pretzels would be great. 



1 cup almonds
1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup peanut butter chips

One more time, throw the ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and zap for a couple of minutes. When it comes out, stir and pour over Triscuit crackers or whatever you have. 



I used the same bowl for both batches. 




Here are the two batches side by side. 


Once cooled, break apart and toss together.  I'm really not sure what to call it...    "Not Quite White Trash Candy"?  ;-)  We loved it even though we don't really have a name for it! 

Find joy with whatever ingredients you have!  ;-)  -Marci

  1. You missed a calling in politics. . .take one bowl of whatever you got and shugar-coat it with whatever is left over. Throw it into hot debate and eat it up. Marci for president!
