Almond bark, Chex cereal, and crushed candy canes. Add some peppermint oil for even more peppermint flavor. Makes a great holiday gift for friends, neighbors, teachers, and co-workers. A quick and easy gift that everyone will enjoy! #chex #peppermint #candycanes #dessert
Place cereal in a very large bowl - the biggest one you have.
Melt candy coating according to instructions on the package. Add the peppermint oil to the candy coating (if using) and pour over cereal. Stir until all the cereal is coated.
Pour crushed candy canes on top of the cereal and toss to coat.
Pour cereal on wax or parchment paper and allow to harden. Once the cereal has hardened, break into pieces and enjoy!
This recipe uses peppermint oil and NOT peppermint extract. Adding liquids to almond bark will cause the candy coating to seize up. Using peppermint oil won’t change the consistency of the candy coating and adds a lot of peppermint flavor. You can buy it at a cake decorating store, Hobby Lobby, online at King Arthur Flour, or with my affiliate link at Amazon: https://amzn.to/3505NNw
The coated cereal will keep for at least a week in an air-tight container.
You can use flavor Chex cereal that you prefer.
I use a food processor and basically make candy cane dust with small pieces.
If you don’t want to use almond bark, you can substitute an equivalent amount of white chocolate. You will want to add a tablespoon or two of shortening to the white chocolate chips to easier to melt and gives it a smoother, creamier texture.
