You need 3 things.  And maybe only 2 if you’d rather not add candy canes.  Ready for it?  A roll of refrigerated sugar cookie dough and 3 Nestlé Crunch PEANUTS bars or 10 mini Crunch bars.

These special Nestle Crunch Peanuts products are so cute – festive, fun and also taste great.  My kids were begging to dig into the candy.  They like the Charlie Brown, Snoopy and friends on all of the packaging.

  4. Set aside excess Crunch bars for later.
  5. Press cookie dough/Crunch mix into baking dish.
  6. Bake for 15-20 mins (depending on your oven) until golden brown.
  7. Remove from oven and sprinkle with additional Crunch bars and crushed candy canes.
  8. (can leave candy canes off)

And to speed up the cooling off process I put the pan into the freezer for 5 minutes.  Then the bars are solid enough to cut quickly.
