Cranberry Crunch Bark

There are so many different variations on the traditional "bark" recipes that it is always hard to decide which to make, but this one stood out to me. First of all, it has white chocolate, and I love white chocolate. Secondly, it has a great mixture of goodies inside that seem perfect for the holiday season. There are sweet and chewy cranberries, puffy crisp cereal bits, and salty crunchy nuts. Those ingredients paired with white chocolate sounded like a match made in heaven.

This has got to be the easiest thing in the world to make. All you have to do is melt the chocolate, mix in the ingredients and spread it onto a baking sheet and let it cool. Pretty much effortless, but totally delicious all at the same time. This bark is a great festive looking holiday treat that I think everyone would enjoy.

I love how this incorporates nuts, dried fruit and chocolate... and the addition of crisp rice is even better! :)
