These peppermint patties with cranberry crunch are sure to be a new holiday favorite candy in your home.
Making these peppermint patties with cranberry crunch couldn’t be easier and yields a beautiful treat.
I love these peppermint patties with cranberry crunch homemade candy during the holidays but don’t want a complicated recipe. This one is great for the beginner and expert candy maker! They don’t take long to make and they are both beautiful as well as delicious.
These candies are great when served up at your next holiday party. They are also fantastic when delivered to your neighbors as a sweet gift. The kids will love helping you make them. They will enjoy giving them and seeing the look on your neighbors faces when they take their first bite even more though.
I love traditional peppermint patties but adding in the cranberry crunch sure takes it up a notch. Bakery on Main cranberry cashew with natural orange flavor granola is delicious on its own but even better with chocolate and peppermint filling. This granola is filled with fiber and whole grains. It’s also dedicated gluten-free.
While any chocolate will do, I love using Endangered Species brand in this recipe. It is such a high-quality product and made from better ingredients. The flavors are also fantastic.
