Thursday Recipe

In honor of the upcoming book signing with Mary Connealy on August 21st, I'm passing along the YUMMIEST Recipe ever from Mary Connealy.

It's appropriately called Connealy Crunch, and we typically make it during the holidays, though just the other day my daughter and her friend Elizabeth were wishing they had some.

Connealy Crunch

Connealy Crunch

2 pound package white Almond Bark (melted)

Melt in microwave 1 ½ minutes. Stir. Melt 1 ½ minutes. That should be enough. You might need slightly longer. Almond bark doesn’t lose its shape when it melts so you have to stir it to see if its enough. Add:

3 C. Captain Crunch Peanut Butter Cereal

3 C. miniature marshmallows

3 C. Rice Krispies

3 C. mixed nuts

Spread out on waxed paper. Let cool. Break into bite sized pieces.

Here in the middle of a summer heatwave, do you have a favorite holiday recipe?


  1. One of the first commenters again! Oh it pays to wake up in the middle of the night.

    Elizabeth loves this recipe. When you serve it at your house or bring it to potlucks, she's probably gonna fight to make sure she gets her share! And that's saying something if she's going to try to nudge James outta the way first!

  2. Other than the PB Cap'n Crunch sounds pretty good. (-;

  3. Your Thursdays are so YUMMY!

  4. Best Candy Recipe Ever.

    You do NOT have permission to change it's name.

    I will be watching!!!!!

    And the Peanut Butter Captain Crunch is the SECRET INGREDIENT.

    Although, it's been my experience that you can pour almond bark over darned near anything and come up with a pretty good candy.

  5. Oh, man... does that ever sound decadent!!! Might have to replace chocolate as my writerly treat. I've been known to melt (in the microwave) a spoonful of peanut butter with a handful of chocolate chips, stir and pour over top of a bowl of vanilla ice cream (or chocolate ice cream if you're really in need of a chocolate fix). That's pretty decadent, too.
