 Here's  what you will need to make Christmas Crunch:  (printable recipe follows) DSC_0097
 Mix all ingredients, except white chocolate chips and oil, in a large bowl.DSC_0100 Melt white chocolate chips and 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in the microwave at 50 % power.  Follow the directions on the package.DSC_0103 It only took about two minutes in my microwave.DSC_0104 Pour melted white chocolate chips in the bowl and mix very gently.DSC_0105 Spread out on cookie sheets that have been lined with a Silpat or waxed paper.  Pop in the refrigerator for about one hour.  Break apart.DSC_0106 Warning!  This stuff is highly addictive!  Make plenty, because you won't be able to stop eating it!     All edible goodies taste better if they are packaged beautifully. DSC_0115  I filled a jar with Christmas Crunch and added a burlap ribbon.  I embellished the jar with a paper rosette, a big red gem, and a handmade tag.

 I filled a cellophane bag, and created this topper from kraft cardstock.  I added some cotton lace, a paper doily, and a little tag.  I stamped the tag with snow flakes and a sentiment.  A  twine bow and some pearls complete the tag nicely.

 For this gift, I filled a clear box, tied it with pretty ribbon, and made a tag.  I stamped a precious reindeer,  and embellished with gems and some holly leaves.
