Candy Covered Cherry Crunch
What You'll Need:
1 (3-ounce) package ramen noodles (see note)
2 tablespoons butter
cup chopped pistachios
1 cup coarsely chopped dried cherries
1 (16-ounce) package vanilla-flavored almond bark candy coating squares
What To Do:
- Gently crush ramen noodles before opening package. Remove seasoning package; reserve for another use.
- Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute crushed noodles, pistachios, and cherries in butter. (Be careful not to crush noodles too finely when sauteing.) Transfer noodle mixture to a large bowl to cool.
- Melt candy coating according to package directions. Pour melted candy coating over cooled noodle mixture, tossing gently to coat. Drop candy mixture by rounded tablespoonfuls onto wax paper; let stand until firm. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
Most ramen noodles come with a seasoning packet. You won't need it for this sweet treat, so save it to use as a soup base or to season veggies.
