Alton Brown’s White Trash

No I am not making a statement, this is what the recipe is called. It is going to be our new “go-to” because white chocolate sold me on the recipe. Good to shack on, and you also can put in dried cranberries or other dried fruit in it.Make sure you have a good airtight container to put it in, although you are going to find that it’s going to need to get refilled a lot!

3 1⁄2 cups Cheerios toasted oat cereal
3 cups Rice Chex
3 cups Corn Chex
16 ounces M&M’s plain chocolate candy
2 1⁄2 cups salted mixed nuts
2 cups small pretzels
2 (11 ounce) packages white chocolate chips (Ghirardelli brand preferred)

Dump the cereals, M&Ms, nuts & pretzels in a large bowl.
Melt the white chocolate in the microwave or in a double boiler. Melt very slowly, stirring occasionally, being careful not to burn the chocolate.
Dump melted chocolate over the rest of the ingredients and fold over and over until you have well-coated hunks and chunks.
Spread the whole mess out on parchment paper and set in a cool place until it sets up, then break it into pieces.
Store in zip-top bags or air-tight containers.
