One of my FAVORITE recipes during the holidays is this Cringle Christmas Crack. It’s honestly like nothing you have ever had before. It’s made with delicious Dole Pineapple Tidbits, cereal, shaved coconut, peanuts, almonds, and white chocolate. It’s so easy and so delicious, you will probably be making this more than once this holiday season.
One of best parts of the holidays is all of the amazing desserts. I generally try and be “good” with my diet, but the holidays are always the hardest time. In fact, this is one of my favorite recipes, and it’s the one recipe that gets me off of my diet EVERY time. I like using Dole Packaged Foods canned Pineapple with this dessert because they carry only the highest quality non-GMO fruits and vegetables, all packaged with care.
Cringle Christmas Crack
You may have seen a few recipes floating over the internet for Christmas Crack, but you won’t have one that tastes as good as this one. Here is everything you will need to make it:
- 1/2 cup cereal crisps
- 1/2 cup peanuts
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 1 (12oz bag) white chocolate
- 1/4 cup pineapple tidbits (dried)
- 1/4 cup shredded coconut
- sprinkles (optional)
Before you can make this Cringle Christmas Crack, you will need to open your Dole Pineapple Tidbits and place them in a dehydrator for a couple of hours, or you can place them in the oven on 175 for 8-10 hours. I do this to get the majority of the moisture out of the pineapple so my Christmas Crack isn’t soggy.
To get started, you will need to heat the white chocolates in the microwave. I like to heat mine in a plastic container and heat them in one minute increments. Stirring in between. It usually takes about 3-4 one minute cycles before they are completely melted.
Next, I gather the rest of the supplies on a plate. Dried pineapple. Almonds. Peanuts. Coconut. Cereal crisps.
Cringle Christmas Crack
Dump everything into the melted chocolate and stir to cover well.
Once all of the mix is covered, place out on a foil pan and then cover with sprinkles of your choice.
You can now either allow to dry for a couple of hours at room temp, or if you are in a hurry and you have the space, place the foil pan into the refrigerator and allow to cool for twenty minutes.
Break the Cringle Christmas Crack in small pieces and serve.
Just be warned, this amazing dessert recipe goes very fast, so you might want to make several batches this holiday season.
