Santa Crunch makes a perfect snack for the holidays. Great for parties or an after school snack. Its easy to put together and is a great recipe for the kids to help make. Serve in cute holiday cups at your next party. I love using the red & green M&M’s to make this treat more festive.
This also makes a great traveling snack. After its completely cooled store in zip-lock bags and pack in the road trip snack bag. Surprise the kids with it when the “Moooooom, I’m booooooored” chanting gets to be too much.
