Ladies get ready for the easiest, quickest recipe you’ll ever make! Do you remember those delicious treats called Clodhoppers, graham wafer pieces covered in chocolate! This store bought treat was actually created and produced in Canada, and let me tell you they are addicting! Once you start eating these treats, you can’t stop and this warning goes for this homemade version as well. The best recipes are the ones where you just wing it, no measurements and you just create as you go. You can really make this recipe your own, add your favourite things! You can add different nuts, dried cranberries or fruit, different cereals, the skies the limit! These are sweet, crunchy, crispy yet melt in your mouth good!
Here is the recipe (measurements are estimated)!
1 box Golden Graham cereal (regular size)
2 cup white chocolate (I used white chocolate wafers)
3/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1 cup chopped cashews
1 tsp vanilla extract
First pour the box of golden grahams and chopped cashews in a large bowl. Next in a small bowl melt your chocolate. ** Now when melting the chocolate you have two options, double boiler or microwave. I don’t have enough patience to melt my chocolate in a double boiler, so I slowly melt it in the microwave and never have a problem. It’s really whatever you are comfortable with!** Once chocolate is starting to melt, add the peanut butter. You want to heat the chocolate with the peanut butter for about 30-60 seconds, just so they combine together smoothly. Lastly add the vanilla extract to the smooth peanut butter chocolate. Now it’s time to gently fold it all together! Pour the chocolate mixture over the golden grahams and fold together until the cereal is coated. It doesn’t need to be perfectly coated.
On a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, spread the mixture evenly and place in the fridge. Allow about 30 minutes to set.
*Tip: store this treat in the fridge always, it will last longer and keep the chocolate firm. These will stay fresh and crisp for about 5-7 days.
