What I made here is a chocolate covered Golden Crisp® bar with almonds and cranberry. Simply made with ingredients I already had in my pantry – look I mentioned it’s baking season for me right? Don’t judge!
It’s really simple to make, especially if you’re familiar with crispy treats, and as I mentioned above you can add whatever you’d prefer and shape them into any shape you’d like! I made them into bars because they’re easier to store and sneak into a movie theater to watch SING© 😉 (Again don’t judge!)
Ok so first thing’s first, grab this coupon and go to your local Kroger, Albertsons, Target, HEB, ShopRite or Winco and pick up a box of Golden Crisp® cereal. Get some marshmallows or marshmallow creme, melting chocolate, sprinkles, a stick of butter, your favorite nuts, and fruit.
In a large thick pot, melt the butter and add the marshmallow. Keep stirring until it’s all creamy and bubbly. Remove it from the heat and add your ingredients – all while stirring.
Once everything is coated and mix thoroughly pour the whole concoction into a pan.
1. Pick Your Shape
Here’s the deal, if you don’t want to go with the same old boring bar, you can lay the mixture on wax paper and make it a little thinner. You can then use cookie cutters to cut out your desired shape. Or you can shape them into a big ol’ ball. Drizzle it with chocolate and off you go!
2. Pick Your Toppings
To keep in the holiday spirit I chose Christmas sprinkles to use. I also decided to dip my bars into the chocolate rather than drizzle it, because really who has that much patience to make the perfect drizzle? I surely don’t.
3. Make Them Every Year!
They’re so easy to make, and so good to eat, that you can make this as part of your family’s holiday tradition. Really you can! Make a batch a couple of hours before you start trimming the tree and putting up your decorations. They’re also the perfect dessert to bring to a potluck. The cranberry and salted almonds I used really made them stand out.
Family traditions are important. For example, our Christmas tree and decorations always goes up on my birthday. The boys all get to make one dessert each for the feast, we always have Panetone, and we always watch a Holiday movie together. I love making easy desserts that the boys can help with, and this is definitely one of those that your kids can make too!
My husband and the boys are calling me the Holiday Cookie Diva this year, and I guess I’ve really earned the title!
