Re: need ideas for cheap treats to make for family
Just made a batch of Candy Cane Crunch-
1 bag of light butter micro wave popcorn (full size) popped with kernels removed.
Melt bag of white candy melts or 1/2 a package of almond bark according to package directions
Crush 6 full size candy canes (I used the blender on "crushed ice")
Pour the crushed candy cane over popcorn in a bowl, pour the white candy melts or almond bark over the top, stir- spread onto wax paper or a silpat lined cookie sheet to harden break into pieces- super fast really tasty, and pretty!
