Gift giving requires a certain art and balance. Presents should be thoughtful, personal, but never showy ... it's no wonder the holidays are so full of stress. Luckily, make-at-home, edible gifts are the perfect solution for any stumped giver -- they're thoughtful and personal by definition, and who doesn't love something to eat? 'Tis the season of giving and eating. Why not combine the two?
I've never been a huge fan of white chocolate, but when it's combined with something salty -- like pretzels, or the salted peanuts in these snowflakes -- I can be swayed! - Merrill
Makes about 40 snowflakes
1 pound white chocolate, chopped
2 1/2 cups Rice Krispies
1 cup salted roasted peanuts
1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler, stirring until smooth. Stir in the Rice Krispies and peanuts, coating them evenly in chocolate.
2. Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of the mixture in little mounds onto a baking sheet lined with wax paper or parchment. Refrigerate uncovered until the chocolate hardens, at least 30 minutes, before eating. Store the snowflakes in the refrigerator in a sealed container. less
