Today’s post is brought to you by NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE, but my love for their chocolate morsels is all my own. These no bake Cranberry Almond Squares are quick and easy to make and no baking is required.
No Bake Cranberry Almond Squares
These no bake squares make a tasty after school snack and are perfect for families on the go. Including almonds and cranberries means you’ve got fruits and nuts covered. The premier white morsels add a rich and velvety smooth white chocolate flavor, and the whole wheat cereal ensures a hearty crunch in every bite.
You can cut these from a 9′ x 13′ pan to create squares or bars. I cut squares for our family, but if you’d like to see what the bars look like, this photo from the NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE site is being shared with permission.
