Don’t you think it’s really strange…
…that my husband never answers my texts?
I should have had “answering texts” written into our marriage vows.
Remember last week how I shared those easy peasy Mallo Cups? Well, here is another SUPER simple addition to your holiday candy plates– Homemade Crunch Bars!! I know you can just as easily buy them, but I loved the fun shapes I could do when I made my own.
It really couldn’t be easier, either. You need:
About a pound (16 oz) of candy making chocolate (candy melts, almond bark, etc–I stock up on the big Ghirardelli Candy Making bars they sell at Sams Club…PERFECT for this)
About a cup of Rice Krispies
Assorted cookie cutters
Line a baking sheet with wax paper and place cookie cutters on top. Melt chocolate according to directions and spoon a bit into each cutter, spreading to the edges and filling the shape. Sprinkle with krispies and spoon more chocolate over the top and spread to cover.
Place baking sheet in the refrigerator until candy is set. Trim any excess chocolate from around the edges of the cookie cutter with a paring knife, then pop the candy bars out of the cutters.
I added some mini M&M’s to cute them up a bit and add color. Just attach them with a bit of melted chocolate and a toothpick.
Can you believe how EASY that was? And they’re so adorable.
Thanks for reading and I hope you have a fabulous Monday!!
