Happy Friday! We’ve made it to another weekend, and the end of the week before Valentine’s Day. I wanted to close the week with one of my favorite snacks to make for many occasions, but it is especially cute for Valentine’s Day. We call this snack “white trash,” which is the perfect name for this tasty treat! Let’s jump into making this super simple snack!
What You’ll Need: Popcorn, pretzels, Chex cereal, nuts of your choice (I like using almonds), white chocolate, and M&M’s. You’ll also need a large mixing bowl, a spatula, a glass bowl/mug, parchment paper, and a baking sheet.
To start off with, mix together your popcorn, pretzels, nuts and Chex cereal in the large mixing bowl. You can adjust the proportions to your liking; I always put in more popcorn than anything else. I suggest not filling it all the way to the top, you’ll see why later.
Next we’re going to pour some of the white chocolate into your glass mug or bowl. Put it in the microwave for 30 seconds, then stir. Repeat this at 30 second intervals until the chocolate is well melted so you can pour it easily. (The reason for the 30 second intervals and stirring is so you don’t burn the chocolate.)
Next quickly pour the chocolate over your bowl of popcorn, pretzels, nuts and Chex cereal. Mix the chocolate in so it lightly covers the entire mix.
Now that the chocolate is all mixed in, spread it out on a parchment lined baking sheet. Once it’s spread, sprinkle the M&M’s over top. You can add as many or as few as you like. Put the pan in the fridge for 10-20 minutes, or until the chocolate has hardened. Then you’re done!
You can throw it back into a large bowl for a party snack, or individually bag this mix for Valentine’s. Either way, definitely plan on sharing this with friends! Have a great weekend, and Happy Valentine’s Day!
