White Trash

No, not that white trash. Not the class of people with very little in the way of pride, no manners to speak of, and hardly any respect for anybody or anything. I'm talking about this delicious snack mix I like to fool myself into thinking is healthful. After all, the cereal box boldly claims, in a very large typeface, that it is A GOOD SOURCE OF CALCIUM AND VITAMIN D, failing to mention, of course, that is after you add milk. And is has nuts and raisins and everyone knows those are nutritious, right? Well, I only make it at Christmas.

White Trash
12 oz. box Golden Graham cereal
16 oz. peanuts or mixed nuts
1 cup raisins
12 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup peanut butter
1 box confectioners' sugar

Mix cereal, nuts, and raisins. Melt together the chocolate and peanut butter and pour over the cereal mixture. Put into a paper bag with the confectioners' sugar and shake to coat well.

  1. Yumm! My kids will love this. It's sounds like a fancy version of Puppy Chow.
