Surprise! You won't believe what gives our Candy Covered Cherry Crunch it's crunchy texture! Combine that with the sweet tastes of vanilla and dried cherries and you've got a cluster candy that's anything but ordinary!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (3-ounce) package ramen noodles (see note)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup chopped pistachios
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped dried cherries
  • 1 (16-ounce) package vanilla-flavored almond bark candy coating squares

What to Do

  1. Gently crush ramen noodles before opening package. Remove seasoning package; reserve for another use.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

May I suggest a healthier version? I use original Fiber One Cereal. Just don't put the cereal in the butter. Add after the nuts and cherries have been sauted.

I have made something like this using chow mien noodles and chocolate. I will try this.
