Sweet and salty goodness! Perfect snack for the holiday time.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Make this easy and delicious Christmas crack a new holiday tradition. It has a wonderful combination of flavors. What makes this different for us is the addition of Bugles. They are extra salty. When coated with the white chocolate, we kept picking those out of the mix. Overall, this treat has the perfect sweet and salty combination. It's pretty when served. Wrap in cellophane bags for a homemade gift.
