No-Bake Chocolate Crunchers

Yield: 24 sandwich cookies
Start to Finish 40 mins
No-Bake Chocolate Crunchers
  • 1/2  cup  walnuts, pecans, or peanuts, finely chopped
  • 1/2  cup  dried cranberries or raisins, finely chopped
  • 1  cup  corn flakes, hand-crushed coarsely
  • 1 1/3  cups  semisweet chocolate pieces
  • 48  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.
