White Trash Candy is perfect for a party. It combines a little bit of sweet with a little bit of salty. It’s a big favorite with friends and family.

If you like chocolate covered Oreo cookies, you will enjoy this candy.

In Spite of the Name, it’s Good Stuff

And, it makes a lot of sense to call this trash because you basically dump everything in it – just like the trash. I mean it’s ok to throw in any leftovers hanging around the house. You know, the maybe not enough to fill a snack bowl kinda stuff.

It’s the white almond bark that brings it all together.

One word of caution – this is VERY addicting! You can’t eat just one bite! And, your kids will love eating “trash”.


Here’s a list of what you need:

  • Corn Chex
  • Rice Chex
  • Fruit Loops
  • M&M’s
  • Dry roasted peanuts
  • Small pretzels, twists or sticks
  • Vanilla flavored almond bark

What is Almond Bark?

Almond bark is a chocolate-flavored white concoction that is made to melt easily over candy, pretzels, cereals, and more! This particular vanilla bark slab combines the delicious flavors of almond and chocolate to create a scrumptious white festive coating on the snack mix.

How to Make White Trash Candy

  1. Mix all dry ingredients in a large container.

Recipe Variations
