Holiday Cheer - Candy Crunch

Sweet and Salty...what a great combination!

Candy Crunch


4 c pretzel sticks or pretzel twists
4 c (24-oz) white chocolate chips
1 (14-oz) can sweetened condensed milk
1 c dried fruit (dried cranberries, raisins, etc.)


Line a 15X10 jellyroll pan with tinfoil.

Place pretzels in a large bowl. In a large saucepan, melt chips with milk over low heat. Stir until smooth. Pour over pretzels, coating well.

Immediately spread mixture into pan. Sprinkle with dried fruit, press down lightly with back of spoon. Chill 1 to 2 hours. Break into chunks. Store loosely covered at room temperature.

Heap on the wood! - the wind is chill; But let it whistle as it will, We'll keep our Christmas merry still. - Sir Walter Scott

my mouth is watering; I have to try this one time; I even have the dried cranberries(boy they sure add flavor to things. This year I made a square with cereal that has dried cranberries in it.

Every time I read your blog I gain two pounds. Tomorrow my grandson and I are making the raindeer food. He wants to know if he can eat some of it too, so I have to make him oatmeal with red and green sprinkles for breakfast.

Have a great Christmas.

How funny, Susan. My grandkids loved doing the reindeer food and sprinkling it out for Santa's reindeer to find. We did it at my mom's house and my house.

What a great idea to make "Christmas Oatmeal!"

Merry Christmas!
