    Alton Brown's White Trash
    why doesn't this work for me? Everyone gave it rave reviews. Mine turned out clumpy...did not spread and coat like I had hoped. Tasted great, but not so pretty. Had wanted to make it for Christmas gifts for office staff. any suggestions?

    I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "Mine turned out clumpy....did not spread and coat like I had hoped"? Was your chocolate completely melted and smooth?

    Did you look at all the photos of the recipe? The pieces are not smoothly or completely coated, in fact the pieces look clumped in some of the pictures. When working with melted chocolate, you have to work fast, especially if you have to spread the mixture out in a single layer until it cools completely so that it sets up properly.

    If you were expecting all the pieces to be smoothly and completely coated (sort of like white chocolate covered pretzels), then you will need a lot more melted chocolate than listed in this recipe (and a different method/recipe). Lay the mixture out in a single layer on parchment lined baking/jelly roll pans (cookie sheets with sides). Working in small sections, evenly pour the melted chocolate over the "trash mixture" making sure all is evenly coated. Melt more chocolate and repeat the process until all the "trash mix" has been completely covered, leave it untouched until completely cooled and set, then break it up into chunks like you would do with peanut brittle. The result will look like "white chocolate trash".....white chocolate with trash mix buried inside the white chocolate.

    Suggestion: Place the mixture into pretty holiday bags or tins, and tie the top with pretty ribbon and a gift tag. icon_wink.gif
