With dinner still a few hours off, Holiday Crunch is the solution to all those hunger pains. The recipe is easy, and with just a few ingredients, your guests will keep in good spirits while waiting for that delectable holiday dinner.


·      1 package white chocolate chips

·      1 heaping cup pretzels (broken into bite-size pieces)

·      1 heaping cup Cheerios

·      1 heaping cup Golden Grahams cereal

·      1 cup peanuts, pecans or a combination of both


Melt the white chocolate chips in a large bowl. Quickly pour in ingredients so the chocolate doesn’t begin to harden. Stir until all the ingredients are covered. Spread on a sheet of wax paper and place in the freezer or refrigerator. Once hardened, break apart into bite-size pieces and place into your holiday tin of choice and serve.
