White Chocolate Christmas Candy

If you have a sweet tooth, this is the candy for you!  I was given this recipe by one of my Girl Scouts many years ago, and it has now become a family tradition in our home to make this every Christmas.  It is so EASY, but sooooo ADDICTIVE!

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 
you'd like.
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!

Hello,

Your Christmas candy looks so colorful and tasty!

Thank you for all your fun comments. I am off blogging, although I have several posts scheduled for my “at home” blog. But I was checking me emails and wanted to thank you for your visit.

We are having freezing mornings with lots of frost here; however, we there are wood burning restrictions so we cannot have a fire. The forecast shows no rain until several days after Christmas, so more than likely we won’t have even a Christmas Day fire.

Thankfully we have lots of lights, candles, and love to warm the house, not to mention electric heat. ☺ We are so blessed!

Merry Christmas!

☺ Hope
