To make our White Chocolate Christmas Candy, you will need the following:
1 - box Toasted Rice or Toasted Corn cereal
1 - bag mini pretzels
1 - pkg White Almond Bark
1 - bag M&M's
1 - bag of Peanuts - optional
First place all of your ingredients in a LARGE bowl
Chop or grate Almond Bark and melt using a double boiler. If
you're like me and don't have a double boiler, you can make one using a pot,
and a glass bowl that is wider than the rim of your pot, so the
steam when the water boils, will not get into your chocolate. That
will make it turn hard and lumpy, and it won't melt smooth enough for you to pour.
Put enough water in the pot that the bottom of your bowl touches the water.
Pour your melted Almond Bark into your mixture
Stir quickly, making sure you coat your entire mixture
Now you are going to dump your mixture out onto an area on your
table that is covered with wax paper, spreading your candy
out into a thin layer.
This allows the chocolate to cool faster. If you don't have wax paper like me,
a cookie sheet works just as well.
After your candy hardens, break up into whatever size pieces
Store in an airtight container. This is is a GREAT GIFT and looks so pretty
in a glass jar where you can see all the colors of the M&M's.
I hope you and your family will ENJOY our White Chocolate Christmas Candy as much as we do!
