White Chocolate Cherry Crunch

It's the holiday season . . .

and it's time to bake!

Who doesn't love the change of routine that the holiday season brings?

True, it can be crammed pack with shopping,

and decorating,

and wrapping,

and parties.

But it can also be full of laughter,

and family,

and friends,

and memories.

This morning, while the cherubs were busy with school,

I was busy about the house.

Sometimes, when I'm cleaning, I try to think of other things to do.

Today, while I was doing both of those things, I thought about making a little treat.

A treat that would use the white chocolate bark I bought.

3 packages of that stuff!

I had absolutely no idea what I was going to use it for, but I've been busy coming up with solutions!

Today, I melted a package of it and scooped out these little crunchy treats!

I think next time I will add a cup or two of mini marshmallows to the mix!

If don't like something in the recipe, just leave it out and add a little more of something you like!

White Chocolate Cherry Crunch

1 package, 24 oz white almond bark*
2 cups rice chex cereal
1 cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts)
1 cup dried cherries (or craisins)

Melt the bark and and remove from heat.

Add in the remaining ingredients and stir until everything is well coated.

Place a long sheet of wax paper on the counter.

Using a large table spoon, scoop out a descent dollop of mixture onto the wax paper.

Allow the white chocolate bark to set up.

Remove from the wax paper and enjoy!

I was able to scoop 24 treats to serve.

*Almond bark comes in a variety of sizes.  If yours is a little less than 24 oz, that's ok, it might just mean that your coating will be a little thinner.  But that doesn't affect the taste!
