Health Nuts -- Do NOT Read Today's Recipe!

Daughter "Queenie" had to bring snackage to an LSU honors fraternity meeting the other night, and decided to make her own version of the popular White Trash Mix. Mmm, what's not to like with a name like that? Easy? Check. Quick? Check. Yummy? Check. And before you healthnicks get on my bahonkus for posting too many unhealthy recipes, I did warn you in the title. I've also featured salad, items not including meat, and a few other good-fer-ya recipes lately. So there!

White Trash Mix

1 1/2 cups peanut butter

1 stick margarine

1/2 bag small pretzels

1 box Crispix cereal

2 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 cup sweet chocolate chips

Fill a large freezer zippered plastic bag half full of cereal and pretzels. Melt peanut butter and chocolate chips together with margarine and mix well. Pour over cereal and pretzels in bag. Shake well. Add in powdered sugar and shake again. Voila!

For the best looking baby back ribs I've seen in a long long time, check out my brand spankin' new friend Mel's blog. We "met" via that wacky bloginterviewer.com place and are now voting for each other's blogs. The pictures of her food made me literally drool!

Thanks for understanding my inability to get around to your blogs as often as I'd like right now. Helping take care of my Mom and wranging my kids (middle son is about to graduate!) are about all I have time for. I miss y'all!

No complaints from this side of the street.

Lori Tiron-Pandit said...

That looks so good!

Jessica said...

Yum. I think I had that before, except it was called dog chow, or something.

Debbie said...

You know we understand. We all find ourselves in similar predicaments occasionally. We are just sorry you are having such a hard time.
I love this mix and my kids have been after me to make it for a while. Maybe I will now!

KLo said...

This stuff is delicious!!!!!!!! We decorate it for the holidays with food coloring and crushed candy canes, and it's a huge hit : )

Angie Ledbetter said...

Hear ya, Jinksy! Oh, but the stores are so near. :)

Oren, think I'll bring some to the next Court of Honor.

It does, doesn't it, Lori?

Jessica, it is kinda like human kibbles & bits. LOL

Thanks, sweet Debbie. Now go make your brats some White Trash. (Well, you know what I mean!) hehe

KLo, thanks for stopping by! I will definitely try your additions on this recipe. Wonder if melted Andes mints would work instead of chocolate? hmmmmmmm

Jody Hedlund said...

I like the milk chocolate version of the recipe. So good!

Janna Qualman said...

Yeah, we call it Puppy Chow! Sooooooooooooooo nummy.


Lois Lane II said...

I loovvveee that stuff! I had a friend from Shreveport, though, who called it "puppy food." Don't know why, but my dog does try to eat it!

Barbara said...

Love the sound of that recipe!

Also, hugs go out to you and your Mom.

Terri Tiffany said...

I've made this before with my own daughter but love your name for is:)) It's ok you can't get around as much-- do what you have to do--- I'll still be here:))

Melissa Marsh said...

Now I'm hungry, Ang. Darn it. ;-)

WendyCinNYC said...

LOL at "White Trash Mix."

I so miss good BBQ. All the BBQ places here in NY are just okay. Nothing inspiring.

Suldog said...

That stuff sounds GRRRRRRRRRREAT (pretend Tony The Tiger is saying it) (Which is kind of apropos for LSU, but I digress.)

Kathryn Magendie said...

THat snack - wow! DANG! I can't talk - after eating about 40 lemon squares in 24 hours....ohhhhhhhh

Well it's a good thing I don't like those nuts 'n' bolts kind of snacks anyway.... wait now.. did you say chocolate? Dang!

Literary Nut said...

I too am glad that at the moment my cupboard is bare of the essentials for this recipe or otherwise I'd have to rush downstairs and make some up. You're still in my thoughts and prayers!

colbymarshall said...

Yes, I've heardthis called "puppy chow", but I like "white trash" better! :-)

Anonymous said...

It looks good and my son is a peanut butter aficionado. He'll love this!

This could convert the masses to appreciating the term white trash and elevate WT standing to new levels! The recipe looks delicious! Good luck with your son's graduation!

Michelle H. said...

Tasty recipe. You have my best wishes for your mother's speedy recovery. And congrats on your son's graduation!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Jody, good both ways, for sure!

LOL, Janna & Lois Lane II (and thanks for stopping by!).

Appreciate it, Barbara & Terri.

Melissa, go get a treat. You deserve!

Wish you could take a trip here, Wendy. We'd fix ya up good. :)

Suldawg, you truly are a displaced honorary Cajun!

I don't believe you, Kat. You probably ate 2 and it just feels like 40. LOL Were they leftovers from the BOOK SIGNING?!

Oh my garsh, LL. Thank you! :)

Angie Ledbetter said...

Hilary, best of all worlds....crunch, sweet & salty!!

Thanks much, Literary Nut. URSweet.

Why, thanky, Colby. :)

JyLnC, lemme know if you fix him some, k?

TTWC, that's the goal. We're converting the ignorant, one recipe at a time. LOL

Thanks, Michelle/Surly Writer.
