White Chocolate Crunch Bars

White Chocolate Crunch Bars

Combining sweet white chocolate, crunch peanut butter, crispy cereal and salty pretzels, our White Chocolate Crunch Bars are perfect for satisfying movie night cravings.

We love movies! Whether we’re watching Hugh Jackman swing his fists with robot boxers in Real Steel, Daniel Craig kick alien butt in Cowboys & Aliens, or Chris Evans save the world from Nazi terror in Captain America, when we’re on the edge of our stadium seats at the cinema or relaxing on our overstuffed sofa at home, we’re usually craving something salty and sweet while we cheer for our favorite Hollywood heroes. While dumping our M&M’s or Reese’s Pieces into our popcorn may satisfy our cravings, we’ve also found that our homemade White Chocolate Crunch Bars do the trick too, and without the high price tag. A blend of white chocolate, crunchy peanut butter, Rice Krispies and salty pretzels delivers a treat your whole family will love to munch during even the most intense action flick. Just serve with your favorite soft drink and you’re ready for a night at the movies!
