Rice Krispie Treats!
I LOVE Chocolate Covered Peanuts. I make these tasty snacks at Christmas every year. I was thrilled when I saw these made with Spring colored M&Ms. I found this recipe at The Slow Roasted Italian website. She actually makes these in the crockpot. So easy. Here is a link to the recipe. http://www.theslowroasteditalian.com/2016/03/White-Chocolate-crockpot-candy.html
I find this candy has the perfect touch of saltiness and sweetness and it looks fun to eat!
One of the best things about this recipe it that is has three simple ingredients; white chocolate, dry roasted peanuts and M&Ms. The white chocolate starts to have swirls of darker chocolate as the M&Ms start to melt. How good does this look?
Just drop by spoonfuls on wax or parchment paper. Reserve a few M&Ms and add to the top. Add sprinkles if you want for an extra splash of color .
It only takes a few minutes for these to cool. Then you are ready to dig in for a delicious treat!

One of the things I love making at Christmastime is Peanut Brittle. I have been using the same recipe for the last 25 years. I lost it this year and thankfully my dear friend who gave me the recipe so long ago still had it! She just took a quick pic and texted it right to me. Thankful for technology…and Alyssa! I also love that it is made in the microwave and I don’t have to use my candy thermometer! If you like to give away candy at Christmas, this makes a nice gift.
Sometimes it takes me a couple of batches to get it just right. I always forget that my microwave cooks high, so I need to adjust the power before cooking. It only takes 10 minutes, so if you don’t love your first batch…the second one is usually perfect! Enjoy!
