"Friends of ours from Texas gave us this recipe that they call 'Texas Trash'," writes Maureen Di Napoli of Hopkinton, Masachusetts. "We think the white chocolate-coated mixture of crunchy cereal, pretzels and nuts is the best 'trash' we've ever had!"

  • 3 cups Honey Grahams cereal
  • 1 cup miniature pretzels
  • 1 cup salted peanuts
  • 1 cup pecan halves
  • 1 package (10 to 12 ounces) vanilla or white chips


  1. In a large bowl, combine the cereal, pretzels and nuts; set aside. In a microwave-safe bowl, heat the chips at 70% power for 45 seconds; stir. Microwave 20-35 seconds longer or until chips are melted; stir until smooth. Immediately pour over the cereal mixture and toss to coat evenly. Spread on waxed paper-lined baking sheets to cool; break into pieces.
