I was on Doris Greenspan blog and came across this candy recipe. It is so good I have made it again today. A great addition for Xmas or any holiday. I did make changes to the recipe: added small marshmallows, white chocolate chips, and peanut butter chips. Soaked the raisins in rum.
Give these a try... you will love them.
Chocolate Crunchies


1/2 cup toasted walnuts or pecans
1/2 cup soft raisins
1 cup corn flakes
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/4 cup peanut butter chips
1 tbsp. dark rum
1 cup mini marshmallows


Place nuts in fry pan and toast them until just golden.
Take the dark rum and pour over raisins and place in microwave and heat for about 30 seconds. Let stand for about 5 minutes until the rum absorbs into the raisins.
Over a simmering pan of water melt the chocolate chips.
Measure all other ingredients and place in large mixing bowl. Add raisins to this mixture.
Pour melted chocolate over mixture and combine.
Using a ice cream scoop, or two spoons place candy on parchment paper to set up.
Once set place in air tight container to store.

Makes about 24
