Christmas Crunch

I have been a bad, bad blogger!! It's been over a month since my last post. The past month has flown by quickly. My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary and we got the keys to our first home. I didn't want to end up on the naughty list this year so I have been busy whipping up some treats for Santa over the weekend.  

I was looking for a holiday Chex mix recipe and came across a picture from Utah Deal Diva's blog. I love a recipe that only has 3 ingredients!! I was going to purchase candy canes and crush them in the blender but I came across a bag of crushed candy canes at Walgreens! Score!!

6 cups - corn Chex
12 oz - white chocolate bark
1/3 cup - crushed candy canes

Cover a rimmed cookie sheet with parchment paper. Follow the directions on the package to melt the white chocolate bark in a large bowl. Add Chex cereal to the bowl and coat evenly. Spread cereal out onto the cookie sheet and sprinkle the crushed candy canes over the top. 

It takes about 20 minutes for the chocolate to set. Break up cereal and store in a airtight container. 

This is a super fast and easy treat to throw together for a last minute gift for a friend or neighbor.

I can't help but want to add mini chocolae chips (or m&ms) to the mix too. It would be so yummy!
