Cranberry Crunch Bark

Hi Everyone! Once again, it's been too long since I posted. Life keeps getting in the way! And this little guy keeps getting in the way...

Please meet Chico. We got him from a local animal shelter and he has been keeping me busy around here. He's very loveable and cuddly but also pretty crazy and wild. We now have him crate trained at night but we are still dealing with other issues. He definitely keeps us on our toes!

I did have a chance to make a new holiday recipe. It is very easy and you don't even need to turn on the oven. If you can use a microwave, you can make this Cranberry Crunch Bark.

White chocolate, pretzels, and dried cranberries are a great salty and sweet combination in this treat! It felt good to be back in the kitchen. It's been far too long since I've baked any goodies.

This is not really a 'recipe', but here is what you need to make it.

2 bags white chocolate chips
thin pretzel sticks
dried cranberries

-Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil.
-Break up the pretzel sticks into small pieces. I used about 1 1/2 cups of pretzels.
-Melt the 2 bags of white chocolate chips in the microwave, stirring frequently.
-When the chocolate is melted, stir in the pretzel sticks.
-Pour the melted chocolate/pretzel combo on the cookie sheet.
-Press in cranberries. I used an entire bag (from Target). Let cool.
-Break into chunks

This would made a great addition to a cookie platter this holiday season. It comes together quickly and you don't have to turn on the oven. It's a great recipe when you don't have much time to spend in the kitchen. Or if you are running to keep your dog from digging through the trash.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
