Recipe for Trash

Hi Friends!

Growing up, we lived all over, including Japan & Germany. We had the best adventures, but we couldn’t visit family back home as often. When we finally moved back to the states, we would visit my grandparents during the summer.

When we would step into my Mema’s house, she would always have “Trash” made and ready for us to eat and talk.

Now many of you, know this as Chex Mix, but in our home we call it Trash.  This is not the recipe off the box, but still classic and yummy.  Not to mention, it is the perfect appetizer with the Super Bowl coming up.  It makes a lot, and it’s delicious!
