My Inspiration . . .

I've always had a love for baking, but it wasn't until I was in college that I had a desire to learn how to cook. In 2009, I decided to start my own cooking blog so I could access my recipes from anywhere, and ktmadeit.com was born.

I love trying new recipes and finding ways to make them healthier & happier on the hips! I love everything about food: the taste, the smells, the presentation, the experimenting, etc. I love to entertain, so I figured this was a great way to bring people together. Hope you enjoy trying out some of the recipes. Happy cooking!

White "Trash"


{ Prep Time: 10 mins / Difficulty: Easy / Yields: 6-8 cups }

Ingredients:
5 cups rice chex
1 cup pretzels, broken into small pieces
3 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows
12 oz bag white chocolate chips
** since this is "white trash," you may add any of the following ingredients:
peanuts, pecans, walnuts, corn chex, etc. **

Directions:
1. Line a baking sheet (preferably one that has a lip around the edge) with parchment paper (or foil) and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, measure out the chex, pretzels, and marshmallows (and whatever additional ingredients you decide to use - just make sure to add the mini chocolate chips last, as they will melt if you add them first! Also, if you plan to use any additional ingredients, you may need to melt more chocolate chips.)
3. Place white chocolate chips in a large pyrex measuring cup (or a microwave-safe bowl); place in microwave and cook on high for 1 min. Stir the chocolate chips, because chocolate tends to burn rather easily; then cook for 30 second intervals until it's completely melted.
4. Pour melted chocolate over "trash" and toss until completely coated.
5. Pour trash onto your parchment-lined baking sheet and let cool (about 15 mins). Break into bite sized pieces and store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks (that is, if it lasts that long!!) ;-)
