I made some Halloween Trash Bars around Halloween, of course, and my daughter has been bugging me to make them again. I decided to make them again, but this time make them Valentine’s Day Trash Bars.
In my mind, and that’s a skeery place right now, I thought this is a great name for all of us who don’t have a Valentine (Sweetheart) to share Valentine’s Day with this year. wah wah Who cares if you gain a crap load of weight, right? Ok, I do care, but I will still turn to this when I’m having my pity party. Nothing wrong with a little pity party here or there as long as you don’t go through life having a constant pity party.
These are some sweet, let me repeat, SWEET bars. And the recipe only calls for 4-5 ingredients. Easy to make. And they’re cute too. Big surprise…..they’re made with Ritz crackers. Who would have thunk it?
Let’s say you have to make a treat for your kiddos classroom party….perfect. Kids love these. I know, with all of my grand kids.
Will you be celebrating Valentine’s Day alone or with your Sweetheart? At least I have my kids and grandkids…they’re all my Valentines!!
Valentine Trash Bars
Valentine Trash Bars. Made with Ritz Crackers, condensed milk, frosting, white chocolate chips and M&Ms. Overly sweet dessert.
Crush crackers. This time I used my food processor. You can do this by hand as well. Call me lazy.
Pour crushed crackers in the baking dish.
Pour sweetened condensed milk over crackers. Add the white chocolate chips and 1/2 of the Valentine's Day M&Ms. Mix well. Make sure all the ingredients are covered by the condensed milk.
NOTE: you can forego the white chocolate chips and use only M&M's or baking chips here.
Pat mixture down and place in the oven.
Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the edges start to bubble and carmelize.
Let cool for at least 1 hour.
Chop/crush your remaining M&Ms. Slather icing on top. Sprinkle the crushed M&M's on top to finish it off.
