Introduction: Candy Clusters

Craving something sweet with a nice crunch? I too had strong cravings for a sweet and crunchy snack. As I Searched the house I found nothing that would suffice. At that moment I knew I had to make my own snack. I spotted a package of candy melts and I had an idea. Grabbing a can of peanuts that was left on the table, I was ready to make my snack. However, I began to have this feeling that it needed something more. While looking in the pantry, I saw a box of cereal and it clicked. Then I mixed the ingredients I found together. I could hardly wait for the snack to set. After tasting this delicious snack, I knew I had to share the recipe for Candy Clusters. Its perfect blend of sweet and crunchy.
