Tutti Fruity Crispy Candy

Oxmoor House
Prep time 5 mins
Cook time 2 mins
Other time 1 hr
Yield about 1 3/4 lb.
You only need three ingredients to make this crispy candy. Pretzels and fruit-flavored cereal (like Fruit Loops) stirred into melted white chocolate give this simple confection a sweet and salty twist.

Ingredients

  • 1 (24-oz.) package vanilla candy coating, broken up
  • 2 1/2 cups sweetened fruit-flavored multigrain cereal
  • 1 cup thin pretzel sticks, coarsely broken

How to Make It

  1. Line a lightly greased 15" x 10" jelly-roll pan with wax or parchment paper.

  2. Melt candy coating in a large microwave-safe bowl according to package directions. Gently stir in cereal and pretzels. Spread candy onto wax paper. Let stand 1 hour or until firm. (Do not refrigerate.)

  3. Break candy into pieces. Store in an airtight container.

Cook's Notes

This simple candy recipe offers several opportunities for kids to help: Let them crush the pretzels in a zip-top plastic bag, stir the cereal into the melted vanilla coating, and, best of all, break the finished candy into pieces and sample it.

We tested with Froot Loops.
