’Tis The Season

Dec 14, 2015 04:38AM ● Published by Family Features

The holiday season is never complete without friends and family gathered ’round for festive cheer and merriment. Whether you’re the hostess with the mostest or an extroverted elf whose calendar is bursting at the seams, there’s no need to fret over what you’ll serve at your next event – even when you’re pressed for time.

According to the National Confectioners Association, 77 percent of adults include candy in Christmas stockings or gifts, 62 percent celebrate with a candy bowl at work or at home and 62 percent bake with candy or chocolate at the holidays. From candy canes to chocolate Santas, seasonal varieties are nearly endless and emerge long before Rudolph makes his rounds each Christmas Eve.

A nostalgic addition to the candy aisle this winter, the Nestlé Crunch Peanuts Collection inspired by Charles Schulz’s beloved Peanuts gang is fully decked for the holidays, complete with Charlie Brown, Snoopy and all of the characters you love. Hailing from the most influential comic strip of all time, read every day by 355 million people in 75 countries, the beloved characters span across newspapers, Emmy-winning television specials, a full length film and now, Nestlé Crunch chocolates.

The holiday collection includes the perfect stocking stuffer – the Nestlé Crunch Gift Cardholder Bar – and the oversized Nestlé Crunch 1 pound Candy Bar, which will surprise and delight candy lovers of all ages. For decorative bowls around the house, Nestlé Crunch Jingles and Miniatures are an irresistible treat that will have everyone coming back for more.

Looking for a treat to bring to your next holiday gathering? In just 20 minutes, you can whip up these heartwarming Peppermint Crunch Fudge bars, featuring Nestlé Crunch miniatures. Your guests will love the texture of the crunchy milk chocolate paired with a burst of peppermint flavor. Plus, it’s a recipe so simple even the kids can join in on the baking fun.
