Neighbor Gift & Delicious Treat: Christmas Crunch Recipe

pretzel and m&m's
TODAY, I share with you my favorite holiday treat. I call it Christmas Crunch (I won’t be sad if you call it Kristen’s Christmas Crunch).  I’ve been making it for so long (before blogs and pinterest) that I have no idea where it came from.  3 simple ingredients, and ready in under 20 minutes, and the whole batch can be wrapped up into about 6-10 gifts for friends.

 

Christmas Crunch

  • 2 reg. size bags MINT M&M’s
  • 1 bag pretzels sticks
  •  1 package white almond bark

Melt the white chocolate at your preferred method (I use a glass bowl in the microwave for 1.5-2 minutes, stirring in the middle).

As it melts, mix the m&m’s and pretzels in another bowl.  Once the chocolate is all melted nicely, pour it into the mix.  Stir.

 

To speed up the hardening process, you can place it in the freezer for 10 minutes or allow to set for 20 minutes or so.  Brake it up and serve.

We took it to a party on a dish like this:

We will deliver them to friends and teachers in a bag with an ornament like this:

We get rave reviews every time!

  3. I have a similar recipe with the addition of some “Cinnamon Toast Crunch” cereal in the mixture. I use M & M peanuts, as our family are not big “mint” lovers.

  12. You can use any bite size cereal, then add any type of small chocolate candies, pretzels, raisins or nuts of your preference. After mixing with melted chocolate I spread mixture on wax paper lined cookie sheets until hardened. Then break into pieces and package for gift giving.
