Chocolate candy is loved by many people and is a delicious and personal gift to give at holiday time. Chocolate crunch candy combines the creaminess of the chocolate with a crunch that can come from a variety of sources, depending on your own personal tastes. This chocolate crunch recipe is highly adaptable and makes about a dozen pieces of candy.
Spray a 9-inch baking pan liberally with cooking spray. You can use either a square or round pan.
Set 1 cup of chocolate chips on the stove to melt in a saucepan. Experiment with different types of chocolate, including milk, semisweet and white for different occasions. Add 2 tbsp of butter to help the chocolate to melt smoothly. Stir the chocolate regularly to avoid scorching.
Stir in one cup of the "crunch" ingredient once the chocolate is all melted. Use crispy rice cereal, chopped almonds, toffee chips or anything else that will provide the contrast in texture.
Put the chocolate crunch mixture into the greased pan and smooth into an even layer with a rubber spatula.
Allow the chocolate crunch candy to harden in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving.
Turn out the crunch onto a cutting board and cut into pieces with a sharp knife. For a more rustic, informal feel, break into pieces with your hands.
