I found several recipes that I liked and have bookmarked to try at a later date, such as this Bruschetta Salad, and Chicken Enchilada Casserole. While I was searching for a savory dish to make for one of our suppers, my sweet husband seems to have a sense of when I'm looking for a recipe on my assigned blog each month, and was more then willing to direct me to Kim's dessert section. I finally decided, with my husbands help, to make her White Chocolate Cereal Nut Clusters.
We have a weekly pizza and movie night at our house, and along with pizza and bread sticks, I usually pop up some popcorn to snack on as well. I thought the cereal clusters would be a nice change of pace, and would satisfy my husbands sweet tooth at the same time. I did change the recipe a bit by using rice Chex cereal instead of the ones that Kim uses, and added two kinds of nuts instead of just one. And wowsers did they come out great. The salty and sweet flavors mingled together perfectly, and were super easy to whip up.
White Chocolate Chex Nut Clusters
1 pound white chocolate or almond bark
6 cups rice Chex cereal
1/2 cup salted peanuts, chopped
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper or foil.
In a large bowl, mix cereal and nuts together.
Microwave white chocolate in a microwaveable bowl for 60 to 90 seconds, stirring after 1 minute.
Pour over cereal mixture and stir until mixture is evenly coated.
Pour out onto the prepared pan, spreading it out into a fairly even layer.
Let cool for 60 minutes, then break into clusters.
Keep stored in an airtight container.
Thank you Kim for this yummy and easy treat. My family loved them, and it will become a regular addition to our snacking repertoire.
