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?


Ok, phew.

So yeah.

Let’s get trashy…

These are really absurd.  Stupid, really.

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…

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!

    Seriously??? I cannot believe that you are trying to politicize the name of a recipe!!! You need to get over yourself and stop being so sensitive!!

    Want to make these, but I was surprised to see that the pan is only 8×8. How small are the serving pieces? Your yield count said 25.

  3. Listen, I love your delectable recipes as much as the next person but I would advise changing the name of these if you care about social justice and caring language. This name just perpetuates the notion that “trash” is by default Black, and thus when it is white is must be accompanied by a racialized descriptor that suggests white people are not by default trashy . Thanks if you do choose to change it!

  4. Hello Shelly – these are amazing! I too like everyone else here can eat the whole pan myself I would like to add these to a list if baking for a large function and am wondering if they can be made ahead and frozen. Looking forward to a response. Thanks for the delicious recipes. Rosemarie

    1. I am getting a glitch in this recipe’s nutritional value for some reason. I think it’s on the end of the program that we use. I’m deleting the info for the moment until it sorts itself out! Sorry about that!

  5. 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.

  6. I have noticed you don’t monetize your site,
    don’t waste your traffic, you can earn additional cash every month because you’ve got hi quality
    content. If you want to know how to make extra
    $$$, search for: Ercannou’s essential adsense alternative

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