No-Bake Chocolate Crunchers

cup walnuts, pecans, or peanuts, finely chopped
cup dried cranberries or raisins, finely chopped
cup corn flakes, hand-crushed coarsely
1 1/3
vanilla wafers


  1. In a large bowl combine the nuts, cranberries, and crushed cereal. Set aside.
  2. In a small microwave-safe bowl melt 1 cup of the chocolate pieces on high (100% power) for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, stirring once midway through melting time. Stir until melted and smooth. Using a rubber spatula, scrape melted chocolate over cereal mixture. Mix to evenly coat with chocolate.
  3. In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt the remaining chocolate for 30 seconds, stirring until smooth.
  4. To assemble each sandwich cookie, spread the flat side of one vanilla wafer with a small amount of melted chocolate. Top with about 1 tsp. of the chocolate-cereal mixture. Brush the flat side of a second wafer with chocolate. Press the two cookies together. Let cookies stand at room temperature to firm. Store at room temperature.

From the Test Kitchen


Position oven rack about 8 inches below broiler. Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with foil; set aside. Cut 12 large marshmallows in half; set aside. Break each of 12 whole graham cracker planks in quarters. Spread half the quarters with warm chocolate, place on prepared sheet. Top with marshmmallow half. Broil about 2 minutes, until marshmallows are soft and melted, watching closely to prevent burning. Top remaining quarters with chocolate-cereal mixture. While warm, sandwich layers together.

If crunch mixture starts to set up, place in microwave and microcook 15 seconds or until slightly sticky.
