Crunchy Peanut Bark Recipe

Crunchy Peanut Bark Recipe

Cereal and peanuts add the crunch to these sweet and peanut-buttery treats you can whip up in no time. One batch makes plenty for snacking and sharing. At Christmas, my sister and I add them to trays of homemade candies we give to the customers of the house-cleaning service we run. We're often asked for the recipe.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:60 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds white candy coating, coarsely chopped
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 3 cups crisp rice cereal
  • 2 cups dry roasted peanuts
  • 2 cups miniature marshmallows

Directions

  • 1. In a microwave, heat candy coating at 70% power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper. Let stand until set. Yield: 10 dozen.
