Nestle Celebrate The Season with Nestle #HolidayCandy #cbias
Christmas Recipes with Nestle
by Amy Trauntvein
Ah the holidays…. with everything that the holidays come with, for me it means baking and lots of it! Nestle asked me to head to my nearest Walmart and purchase their Nestle Butterfinger Jingles, Nestle Crunch Jingles and Nestle Spree Candy canes to try out a couple of new recipes.
I was able to find all the holiday candy I needed quite easily at Walmart. Spree Candy Canes…
Nestle Butterfinger Jingles on the bottom shelf.
And Nestle Crunch Jingles on the top shelf.
I needed to get a few other items that we were out of, and then headed home to do some holiday baking!
First, I decided to make Peanut Butter Sleigh Ride Bars
The kids snarfed them right down. Don’t they look scrumptious? Would you like the recipe?
Peanut Butter Sleigh Ride Bars
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Beat brown sugar, peanut butter, butter and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour and baking soda.
Stir in Nestlé Jingles and press dough into 9-inch-square baking pan, distributing Nestlé Jingles evenly.
Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Cut into bars.
NOTE: Try substituting NESTLÉ Milk Chocolate Jingles.
The next recipe is one I came up with using the Nestle Milk Chocolate Crunch Jingles.
Nestle Crunch Krispie Twirls
Would you like the recipe for this one too?
Nestle Crunch Krispy Twirls
2 bags Nestle Crunch Milk Chocolate Jingles unwrapped
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1 cup peanut butter (creamy or crunchy)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 6 cups crisped rice cereal
Pour sugar and corn syrup into saucepan and stir together.
Cook on Med-Med high heat until boiling. Let boil for one minute. Take off heat and add peanut butter and vanilla and stir until smooth.
Pour peanut butter mixture into cereal and mix well. Dump it all onto a wax paper lined cookie sheet and press evenly.
Put Jingles into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds and stir, heat 30 seconds more and stir again. If not all melted, microwave at 15 second intervals stirring in between until melted.
Pour melted chocolate onto pan and spread evenly.
Wait 5-7 minutes to cool a bit and then start rolling, using the wax paper to help your roll stay together.
Wrap roll with the wax paper you used or get a clean sheet of plastic wrap. Either will do. Let cool completely, at least 2 hours. When cooled, the chocolate should be hardened and will hold the roll together. Cut slices and serve. Kids enjoys these treats as they can just grab and go, plus they look cool!

Love to all and Happy Holidays! ~Amy
I have been married for 22 years to my awesome hubby, Todd and we have 4 equally awesome kids who keep my young! Our favorite thing to do together is travel. I enjoy gardening and puttering around my yard. I am very active in my church and am currently serving the children, and I love volunteering at my kids’ schools doing whatever I can to help the teachers and staff.
