White Trash Bars

Despite their name, these White Trash Bars taste incredible! They’re the perfect mixture of sweet and salty, and you only need 4 simple ingredients to make them!

White Trash Bars Are An Easy No Bake Dessert!

Don’t get offended. It’s just a name. I didn’t even come up with it…this recipe is one of those 1980’s recipes that all sorts of weird names. Simply enough these bars are crushed Ritz crackers with toffee bits, and sweetened condensed milk. You can cover them in frosting if you want to go that extra mile, but they’re just as good without the frosting too!

I let my kiddo crush up the Ritz crackers…

Also, he would like me to point out that he was wearing a wizard costume…just in case you were wondering about his hooded vest. Moving on…

Once you have the Ritz crushed mix them with a bag of toffee bits and pour into a greased baking pan…
Then pour a can of sweetened condensed milk on top…
You can do this right in the pan, or in a separate bowl.
Stir it all together and press evenly into the pan.
Bake it for 15-20 minutes.
Let it cool completely and then trash it up a little more with frosting.
You can eat it right away or even let it sit overnight. It’s great the next day!

How To Store These:

These are perfect kept at room temperature stored in an airtight container. You can also freeze them airtight for up to 30 days for best freshness!

    Everyone always wants this yummy recipe after trying these bars when I’ve baked them! Surprisingly, my dentist also loves them, so I bring a pan of them to his office on or around his birthday every year! I typically cut the bars into 20 pieces because I’d been told that they are a little too sweet for some, and I will usually reserve 1/4 C. toffee bits from the 8 oz. bag to sprinkle on the top over the frosting.

  2. These are delicious and so darn simple to make. I used chocolate chip’s instead of the toffee, only because I had them on hand. I made a simple powdered sugar glaze and poured that on top, again just because powdered sugar was handy. We will definitely be making these again. I can already imagine all the different variations I can make. Yum Thx for a great site. Keep the wonderful recipes coming please.
