Christmas Trash

Recipe by CalicoCandy

The best Christmas snack you'll ever try---everyone starts asking for it weeks before Thanksgiving. A friend gave me the recipe, and she had found it in a magazine, "Southern Living Lady", I think.

I gave this recipe 5 stars. I had this at a Christmas party and it was so yummy! The only difference was the lady who made also included Cherrios. She has made two batches. One was made with chocolate and the other with vanilla chips. I'd like to make a batch using sugar free chocolate chips. Thanks for posting a yummy recipe! Christine (internetnut)
