How to make the best sweet and salty white chocolate candy in Minutes using your microwave?

The Secret Ingredient in this quick and easy microwave candy is Pringles Potato Chips. The potato chips add crunch and salt to the candy. When you mix those two ingredients with the white chocolate, it is a magical treat you will not be able to stop eating.

You will also need peanuts (or your favorite nuts), white chocolate chips, and plain M & M’s. Use holiday M & M’s for each special occasion.

Recipes for our Daily Bread blog follower

A Recipes for our Daily Bread blog follower, Nadine B. from Okalahoma, sent me a recipe for these Chocolate Candy Clusters.  This sweet and salty combination got my attention.  I had to try making them.  Nadine told me when she makes these treats everyone tries hard to guess what the special ingredient is in them.

Yes, Pringles potato chips.

I have always been a white chocolate fan, but when you mix melted white chocolate with the salty Pringles, peanuts and M & M’s, it is lip-smacking good.  Everyone will be trying to guess what is the crunchy salty thing?  Who can go wrong with M & M’s?  All of these ingredients add up to the perfect combination to make these white chocolate treats.

Boys In The Kitchen

I asked my twin boys to help me in the kitchen with these White Chocolate Candy Clusters.  They are now young adults.  Caleb is my special needs son, and Casey is his twin brother.  I knew they would love to help make these treats.  I am always excited to get my older children involved in the kitchen.  The older they get, the less time they have at home.

Making these White Chocolate Candy Clusters with family

Anyway, we had a great time making these treats.  The only problem was as soon as we opened the Pringles, M & M’s, and peanuts they began to sneak bites.  What are teenage boys for?   I think it is a game when these two are in the kitchen together to see if they can sneak a bite without me catching them.  Casey also does it because he knows Caleb will laugh and laugh at him.

Caleb my Special Needs Son’s Belly Laugh

If Casey can get Caleb started laughing, Caleb will normally burst into a huge big belly laugh like Santa Claus, and you cannot stop him.  Casey is good at getting Caleb to laugh. What is a twin brother for?   Caleb is a man of few words with his cerebral palsy, memory loss, processing problems, and selective mutism, so it is always pure JOY to hear him laughing.  I am not sure Caleb realizes he is completely giving away the fact that Casey is doing something he should not be doing or maybe he is laughing so I will catch him.  Either way, I enjoyed making these White Chocolate Candy Clusters with Pringles with my big boys.

  1. Diane, you’re killing me….I am trying to cut back on sweets, but this one deserves a make, taste and probably many more tastes, lol. This is a terrific recipe that is so easy, quick and perfect for any time of year with that balance of sweet and salty. THANKS for this one! Carrie, A Mother’s Shadow
