5 cups Food Club Corn Squares cereal 

10 ounces (282g) Food Club white chocolate, chopped 

3/4 cup Food Club Confectioners’ Sugar 

1 cup crushed peppermint candy canes (about 8–10 large candy canes) 

Pour cereal into a large mixing bowl. 

Melt white chocolate over a double boiler or in the microwave. If using the microwave, melt chocolate in 20 second increments, stopping to stir after each increment until melted fully. Pour and stir melted chocolate over cereal, until the corn squares are covered completely. Mix in the crushed peppermint candy. 

Now, put the chocolate corn square mix in a resealable plastic bag and add the powdered sugar so it covers the mixture. Seal and shake until the chocolate mix is coated evenly in powdered sugar. Enjoy immediately or store for up to two weeks.
