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.

White Trash Bars | Cookies and CupsThese 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…

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.

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?

  1. These look like they would be hard to stay away from! I’ve never heard of this recipe before. Thanks for being the recipe tester! I will make these, and have everyone try and guess what is in them! What a fun recipe!

    I hope you don’t mind, but I put a link to your blog on mine!

    If I can’t find any toffee pieces, what else can you use? I don’t like to bake (I just like to read this blog for entertainment & drooling) but I might give these a try. Could you top these with some white chocolate, maybe? What do you guys think?

  3. tanya

    these sound beautiful but when you say toffee do you mean soft sticky toffee or hard toffee pieces? would like to know so i can make these little trashy bites lol!

    I love the name you gave these bars!!! I’ve been making these for years! Never had a name for ’em though… They are really great. When I first saw the ingredients I couldn’t believe it, so simple, but tastes nothing like you’d think! Glad to see I’m not the only one with this easy recipe up my sleeve 😉

      Awesome! When I first had them at my friend’s house I couldn’t believe what they were! Mine came out a little more dense than hers, though, but just as yummy!

    I’ve made these and when they came out of the oven, I put some Hershey bats on top. As the chocolate melted, I spread it evenly. Let cool and enjoy.

  6. Haha… this post.

    The wizard costume, the name, the absurdity… 🙂

    I have a can of open sweetened condensed milk and I happen to have some Daim, too. Now I just need some Ritz crackers and then I can make like, an 1/8 of this. Yay!
