Crispy Craisin Nut Crunch

Crispy Craisin Nut Crunch – Gail Fuller, Raleigh (1st place)

1 eight-ounce package of white chocolate chips, melted
1 cup dried cranberries (Craisins)
1 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
1 cup Malt-o-Meal crispy rice cereal
¼ cup chocolate chips (any flavor), melted

Toast pecans in 350-degree oven for about five minutes.  Melt chips in a bowl over boiling water.  Add pecans, dried cranberries and crispy rice cereal to melted chips and stir until evenly coated.  Drop by tablespoons onto wax paper. The mixture will not stick together very well until cooled.  Cool about 15 minutes in refrigerator.  Melt ¼ cup chocolate chips over boiling water and drizzle over each cluster. Recipe makes about 24 clusters.
Lisa’s Notes:  I use 10-12 oz. of white chocolate. This was very easy and great for the holidays.  They will firm up and come together while they are cooling so mound them together on wax paper and let them sit.  Then drizzle with the dark or milk chocolate.
