Peanut Crunch

You may think it is too late for cooking up goodies in your kitchen for Christmas 2014...but think again.  Here is a simple and delightful sweet 'n salty treat that you can whip up in a few minutes.  It is a great addition to the Christmas trays and also packages up nicely for a hostess gift any time of the year.  Thank-you to my friend Judy who shared this recipe on her blog many years ago.

  • 1 bag peanut butter chips
  • 1 bag white chocolate chips
  • 1 tablespoon peanut butter
  • 1 cup dry-roasted peanuts
  • 2 cups mini-pretzels, somewhat crushed
Place chips and peanut butter in a large, glass bowl.
Microwave on high for 2 minutes.
Stir until smooth. (Continue to heat in microwave for 20 seconds at a time, if necessary.)
Add peanuts and pretzel pieces.  Stir to coat evenly.
Spread on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
Remove from the refrigerator and break the sheet of candy bite-sized pieces.
Place in a large container with a tightly fitting lid and store in the refrigerator until needed.
