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!

Don’t get offended.

It’s just a name.

 

These bars are pretty crazy.

Simple, and yes, trashy.

When I tell you what’s in them you’re gonna die…

 

So maybe I shouldn’t?

I don’t want you to die.

 

Well, I guess I’ll chance it.  I’m sorry, playing with your life is not something I take lightly.

 

Ok here goes…Ritz Crackers.  Sweetened Condensed milk and Toffee Bits.

That’s it.

 

Are you still there?

Hellerrrr?

 

Ok, phew.

So yeah.

Let’s get trashy…

White Trash Bars.

But you have to make them.

Just once.  At least.

 

How to Make These Delicious Dessert Bars

I let my kiddo crush up the Ritz crackers…

Moving on…

Once you have the Ritz crushed mix them with a bag of toffee bits and pour into a greased baking pan…

Stir it all together and press evenly into the pan.
 photo IMG_7267_zps0a620b76.jpgBake 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!

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

I skipped the frosting drizzled them with caramel, then followed with a white and dark chocolate drizzle they looked amazing and were a giant success at a wedding I did actually ran out of them on the table people were going crazy over them.

how about graham crackers instead of ritz?

I put cream cheese frosting on top. Nice flavour contrast. In a pinch I use canned. I could eat the whole pan!

I’d bet these would be really good with chocolate drizzled on top instead of the frosting, too!

could you use chocolate chips in place of the toffee bits?

Wanted to like these but, they were just too sweet. I cut them super small and was able to enjoy them with coffee. Won’t make them again, I may exchange the toffee chips for chocolate chips. They were super easy to make and I could use another quick and easy bar cookie for church events. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Hi Shelly,

There is a pin floating around on pinteresr that has high jacked your photo of you pouring the condense milk, cause when you click it it takes you to some weird website & no recipe. I reported it, but thought I’d let you know.

These look so good!! I can’t find toffee pieces anywhere! What can I use instead? Thanks

I have two questions, the first one being do you have to use toffee chips because I can’t find them anywhere! And would cream cheese frosting work for the top?
Thanks x

What a great find these were for the holidays! I made several batches with my grand kids and we played with the recipe a bit adding chopped cashews, coconut or chocolate chips. I like the original myself! Everyone wanted your recipe and could not believe how simple it is! I ate so many of these over the holidays, I could feel the sugar sludging up my veins. Thank you for sharing your “sweet life” with us!

I made these because the name of them just made me laugh. OMG, these are NOT good for my diet! I had to take them to my school so I can get the rest of my colleagues fat too. These are INSANE! Yum. I’m already planning on adding these to my bake sale fundraiser (I bake at least 12-15 different kinds of cookies/bars for my class field trip–I teach special ed and a lot of my students’ parents can’t afford to pay fees so I do the fundraising and everyone in my school line up to buy stuff!).

We don’t seem to have toffee bits in Sydney, Australia. The Gourmet Nut Co. have a product that is called “Gourmet English Toffee Almond / Cashews Blend”. Do you think I could use that instead?

There are no words to describe the aroma. These are incredible! I used the chocolate toffee bits. No need for icing. I plan to make the plain bits today. These are the best treats! Thanks, and I love your blog!
