Munch Munch Festive Crunch

Some of the best combinations involve sweet and salty ingredients, which is why this Almond Bark Mix has been a Gourmet Gab family favorite for years! Just combine these everyday ingredients, toss with candy coating, and voila! Thanks to Auntie Carol for sharing her recipe.

  • 9 c. Crispix
  • 3 c. Cheerios
  • 1 c. peanuts
  • 6 oz. M & M’s
  • 7 oz. mini twist pretzels
  • 2 packages almond bark or vanilla flavored bark (candy coating)
  • 1 tsp. almond extract


  1. Mix all dry ingredients together in a big bowl. (May need to do in two batches if everything does not fit.)
  2. Melt the candy coating slowly in microwave. If you use the vanilla flavored candy coating, stir 1/2 tsp of almond extract into each tray of melted candy coating.
  3. Generously coat dry ingredients with melted candy coating.
  4. Place a long piece of wax paper on a flat surface and spread the mixture on top. Break apart when cool.

Love food. Love self. Love life.
