The ever popular White Trash can be made for any holiday...just change out your candy colors. Lucky Charms would have been great to use in this, but I was out after making yesterday's
Magically Delicious Treats. What I didn't use in the recipe, the kids devoured immediately b/c I don't buy them very often! I made this White Trash a little 'ritzy' (hardy har har) by using Ritz crackers in the place of the pretzels I normally use. Ritz crackers go amazingly well with chocolate. Basically, you need 12 cups of whatever cereals/snacks you have in your pantry...8 cups of some form/combo of cereals and 4 cups of something salty - popcorn, pretzels, crackers - it's all good. Then a package of white almond bark or 20-24 oz of white chocolate chips. You can then add whatever mix-ins you like, we always use some kind of M&M's. So go ahead, get trashy :-)
And as long as you are trashin' things up, gotta have some green beer (or any light colored beverage would work - I might make some green ginger ale or Sprite for the kiddos)
All you need is 2 drops of liquid green food coloring in the bottom of the glass, then pour in your beer. It is such a pretty color, and makes cool green foam. (I'm easily amused.)
Someone had fun taking pictures of the green beer. And then drinking it.
Also, I attempted to turn my Copycat 'King's Hawaiian' Bread green.
It's not as green as I would have liked. My daughter informed me it looked like moldy bread. I, of course, thought it was cool. Here again, I just added a few drops of food coloring to the dough while it was kneading in the bread machine. It is probably best to add the coloring to the liquid ingredients, but I forgot. The bread still tasted awesome, regardless of the color!
Now, I know some people are against adding artificial coloring to their food, and I understand that. However, I tried the au naturel approach last year...
Cute right?! All natural food coloring. But how did they taste...
That's a 3 y/o equivalent to a 'thumbs down'! They had potential, but I haven't revisited the recipe. It definitely needed some work!
What will you be doing for St. Patrick's Day?
