Welcome to #ChristmasSweetsWeek 2019, co-hosted by Terri from Love and Confections and Christie from A Kitchen Hoor’s Adventures! What better way to celebrate the holidays than with food and fun? 25 bloggers from around the country have come together to share some of their favorite sweet Christmas recipes!! Deck the halls and get ready for very merry sweet treats, like fudge, cookies, Christmas morning breakfasts, layer cakes, cocoa, and more! Follow along on social media with our #ChristmasSweetsWeek hashtag. Happy Holidays!

My first #ChristmasSweetsWeek recipe for you is an inspired version of the Star Crunch. I remember buying these cuties when my Young Astronaut group met after school. I thought it was cute to give them a "Star" Crunch!

This recipe is a simplified version, but it has the "chew" and the chocolate/caramel taste that I love in a Star Crunch!
