I love baking and delivering homemade gifts to our neighbors at the holidays.  It's been one of my favorite Christmas traditions since I was a little girl.  And crazy as it sounds, I actually live in the exact same house that I grew up in and since it's such a great little neighborhood some of our neighbors are the same neighbors that lived here when I was little!  Every year since I can remember, one particular neighbor has brought us a beautiful plate of traditional German baked Christmas goodies.  This neighbor also happens to be a total health nut, so every time I try to reciprocate I try my hardest to bring them something that isn't packed full of sugar.  Last year I wracked my brain, but ended up giving them a bag of oranges I picked from our tree for Christmas because everything I was baking was definitely packed full of sugar.  So this year I'm totally patting myself on the back because I came up with the PERFECT "baked" gift for them.  It's not too sugary, it actually contains better-for-you ingredients items, it looks festive, and it was easy to make with the help of Planter's Holiday Nut Crunch.  


It's a really delicious sweet and salty crunchy dessert that isn't overly sweet.  And the best part is that it looks festive, but you'll only spend about 10 minutes in the kitchen making it!

Holiday Nut Crunch Cracker Toffee
8 full-size graham crackers
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 Planter's Holiday Nut Crunch




The Planter's Holiday Nut Crunch Mix is a perfect combination of sweet and salty with peanuts, raisins, chocolate candies, chocolate covered peanuts, almonds, cashews, and cranberries.


To make your "toffee" simply lay the graham crackers out on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet so that all of the crackers are touching each other (like a big rectangle).  Melt your chocolate chips, then use a rubber spatula to spread the chocolate over the graham crackers.  Sprinkle Planter's Holiday Nut Crunch over the top of the chocolate, then refrigerate for about 20 minutes until the chocolate hardens.  

Break into pieces and enjoy.

I put mine on a red plate, then just tied it up with cellophane and a festive bow and it's ready to be delivered!

It's also a perfect gift by itself for those people on your shopping list who already have everything in the world that they need.  Like my Dad- Planter's Holiday Nut Crunch is totally going under the Christmas tree for him this year! 



You can buy Planter's Seasonal Nuts at Walmart, where many locations have a super fun sleigh display like this one!  It's located in an aisle between the sodas/water and the popcorn/chips.



Another fun thing about Planter's Seasonal Nuts is that it has its own app!  Just scan the barcode on a container of Planter's Seasonal Nuts and Go Nuts with all of the fun things you can do- take a selfie with Mr. Peanut, browse recipes, and check out all of Planter's seasonal items.  Download the Blippar app and get started! I love the Holiday Tips and my kids love that they can take a selfie with Mr. Peanut!  



Have a great weekend! xoxo
