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.
Editor's Note: This recipe was tested in a 1,100-watt microwave.

"I am the submitter of this recipe and here's a little tidbit about it. I've been making it for years and I am also a die hard fan of The Oak Ridge Boys........I've been making this candy and taking to them for probably the last 15 years THEY ALL LOVE IT AND ALL THEIR WIVES HAVE THE RECIPE TOO!!! I make a big pan for the Oak's bus and a pan for the band's bus usually around Christmas time and also throughout the year as I go to shows. I will be seeing them next month and plan to make up two batches of it for them : ) And, I am noticing there is a misprint, you need to heat it at 50% power in the microwave, the almond bark does burn if you heat it too long or too hot."

"New Christmas treat! Love these......did mine on the stove since I don't have a microwave (takes up too much counter space when I hardly ever use it.). These came out beautifully!!"

"This is one that I found in the TOH magazine many years ago - if I were to send in a Christmas platter to my husband's shift without these on it, I'd never hear the end of it. They are very tasty, and very quick and simple. Also travel and store well."
