Tips & Tricks

  • Feel free to use different cereals or throw in any of your favorite mix-ins. Peanuts, cashews, and marshmallows are some of our favorites.
  • If you’re getting impatient while waiting for the chocolate to set and want to chill it in a hurry, just pop it in the freezer for a few minutes.
  • For best results, use a high-quality white chocolate. It will melt more smoothly and give your mix a richer flavor.
