White Chocolate Cranberry Candy Crunch

I’m warning you…this stuff is dangerous.


And it’s also not healthy or healthified, by any means…unless you want to join me in saying that the cranberries have to account for something, right?


Over the weekend I found myself in a mood to make some sort of Christmas treat, but I wasn’t in the mood to turn on the oven or mix up a batch of cookies. I wanted something quick, I wanted something easy, and I wanted something I could also sneak a bite or two of in the process. Winking smile

I also wanted an excuse to break into some of THIS glorious candy.


A couple of weeks ago, I was contacted by the super awesome guys over at Santa Barbara Chocolate Co. They noticed that enjoy baking a cookie or two every now and then, and they generously offered to send me a box of some of their favorite products – some for baking, and some for straight eating…

Including a number of chocolate bars,



Both large AND small.


And they even included a box of California Collection candies which, I must say, were extremely delicious. Jay and I devoured half the box the night it came.


As for the baking supplies, I am now the proud owner of a 4.4 pound package of unsweetened baking chocolate.


I mean, seriously…the thing is a monster.


As well as a large box of cocoa powder and a 3-pound bag of white chocolate.


I guess you could say that the white chocolate is what spurred my desire for these decadent little treats. Winking smile


Since I already had a bag of white chocolate chips on hand, I decided to split the recipe with one bag of the chips and 2 cups of the white chocolate coins that I had. Since I figured most people don’t have a random 3 pound box of white chocolate lying around, I wrote out the regular recipe.


If you’re in need of a quick, festive, delicious little treat to give away this holiday season, may I suggest you trying out a batch of this White Chocolate Cranberry Candy Crunch? I promise…if you like white chocolate and the salty-sweet combo, this is definitely a winner!

    I’m sure you don’t quite know given that you just made it, but I would love to know how well it keeps over a few days. I need something to bring to my in-laws’ Christmas Eve party, but we’ll be flying back into town after the party is already happening. I’m wondering if this is something I could make in advance, store airtight in the fridge, and pull it out for the party five days later.

    If it’ll keep, I think they’d love it!

    oh my goodness, that looks so amazing! I love how few ingredients you used, but I’m glad you got all of that chocolate and not me. I’d easily put on 20 pounds in a day with that in my kitchen! I just went onto their website and their boxed chocolate sets are making me drool over here

      I did the fridge, although I have some stored in the freezer. I think fridge would be best at first unless you need it to chill quickly
