  • 1/2 cup cereal crisps
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 12oz white chocolate
  • 1/2 cup pineapple tidbits dried
  • 1/4 cup coconut shredded
  • sprinkles (optional)


  • To get started you will need to dry the pineapple tidbits in a dehydrator or purchase the pineapple already dehydrated. 
  • Heat white chocolate in the microwave according to instructions suggested on the package.
  • In a small mixing bowl, add dried pineapple, almonds, peanuts, coconut, and cereal crisps. 
  • Add the white chocolate to the mixture and stir well. Make sure to coat all of the ingredients. 
  • Remove from bowl and place on a prepared cookie sheet. Allow to cool for 1 hour, or place in the refrigerator for faster cooling. 
  • Break into small pieces before serving. 


  1. If you have access to a dehydrator, you can make and store extra pineapple. 
  2. If you choose to use a dehydrator, make sure you run a complete cycle so that the pineapple is fully dehydrated. (You don't want soggy Christmas crack)
  3. Consider doubling or tripling this recipe and sharing this recipe with friends and family.
