Holidaze Crunch from Cousin D
If you're the kind of person who makes stuff like homemade Star Crunch at home with melted chocolate and potato chips, then this high-AF crunchy stoned concoction is about to send your holiday party into overdrive! Just be careful; part of the process requires a yuletide-log sized krispie treat and the temptation to eat it whole is like none other!
16 cups crispy rice cereal (i.e. Cocoa Crispies)
1/2 cup coconut oil (regular)
1/4 cup infused coconut oil
2/3 cup molasses
32 oz marshmallows
2 bags (22oz total) caramel bits
1 can sweetened condensed milk
5.1 oz box vanilla instant pudding mix
A chunk or few bars of white chocolate
Spices (season to taste):
cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, ground cloves
Start by laying out, and greasing a long piece of parchment paper. Melt the marshmallow with the non-medicated oil along with caramel bits. When combined, add the molasses, spices and sweetened condensed milk. Then add in the pudding mix and infused oil (your dose of choice).
In your most gargantuan bowl (or large pot), fold the cereal into the mixture. Pour this quickly into a thin strip down the center of the parchment paper. As it cools, use the greased parchment to roll and shape it into a log, just as you would a giant joint on the countertop (we’re trying to make a perfect cylinder). Slice into discs and smoosh those into patties before cooling completely.
Coat with melted white chocolate. To decorate, try adding a few drops of food color gel and ⅛ cup water, dipping a utensil (or cheap new toothbrush like me) to dip, flick and drizzle. Enjoy(!) and have a happy holiday season.
