One of the things I love about Christmas is wrapping gifts and making them special by adding bows and little accent items. Our gift came beautifully wrapped in a decorative box and bow. It is so pretty it was difficult to open it. But of course we were curious to have a taste of the Cereal Crunch! If you are looking to make a homemade gift for someone – this is the gift! It is easy to make and homemade gifts made with love are the best gifts!

Making the Cereal Crunch

We start with selecting our ingredients that contains 3 cups of Captain Crunch Cereal, 3 cups Rice Krispies Cereal, 3 cups of pretzel sticks, and 3 cups Chow Mein Noodles. (You did not expect that last ingredient, did you?) Of course feel free to substitute your favorite ingredients. Melt 2 pounds of white candy either in a double boiler on the stove top or in the microwave. Mix dry ingredients with candy coating until pieces are coated and forms into clusters. Spread on wax paper to dry (20 – 30 minutes) and break up further into bite size clusters. Store in an airtight container. 

When serving Cereal Crunch, place on a festive plate or place in a beautiful gift box. Doesn’t it look like Christmas snow! Such a pretty presentation and gift. Enjoy!

  1. I have had similar treats, and yes with the chow mein noodles! Someone at work used to make them with butterscotch chips. BTW Captain Crunch cereal was my favorite as a kid! Last week I used up some unsweetened chocolate I found in the cupboard and added maple syrup, cereal, cashews and marshmallows. We loved it so much I also went out and bought more ingredients! Only I got sweetened chocolate this time (dark and semi sweet). Cereal it just wonderful with chocolate! 💗
