Step By Step  

Our classic frozen crunch cake, made extra festive for Christmas with a kiss of almond that gives this dessert favorite all the flavors of sugar cookie season!

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Once upon a summer, we created a frozen cake concoction called ever-so-splendidly the Strawberry Crunch Cake. And the webwaves went wild. Clicks happened. Recipes were downloaded by the bajillions. Forks were tied to hearts. Strawberry crunch dreams were dreamed. It was the stuff of fairytreats.

And so, we made more. First, there was the S’mores Crunch Cake. Which was joined shortly thereafter by the Snickerdoodle Crunch Cake. And once the holidays hit, and people couldn’t bear to live without their creamy, dreamy frocake, we went and whipped up the Candy Cane Crunch Cake.

But, it wasn’t enough! Even if you made every one of our crunch cakes daily, there were still days between. And holiday parties were calling and begging. We need more, they said! Crunch our hearts out, they cried!

Unwilling to leave the pleas of holiday cravings unheard, we grabbed a bowl and starting baking up another glorious version of this wickedly simple, no-bake crunch cake.

Inspired this time by sugar cookies and rum, Christmas Crunch Cake is sprinkled with sparkly sprinkles. And kissed with almond. And rum. And crunch!

The most perfect crunchy crust ever has an unlikely genesis ingredient: Nature Valley™ granola bars. Say hello to the finest secret streusel on the planet.

Once crunched, these babies are mixed with melted butter and sugar, then half of the mixture is pressed into a 9x9-inch pan. Once frozen, the butter and sugar hold the crust together nicely, so no baking is needed.

Now grab the collection of fine filling ingredients. Once whipped together, this mixture is quickly folded together with Christmas nonpareils and spread into the crust-lined pan.

Top with the remaining crunch and freeze. Perhaps the hardest part of this crunch cake is the waiting!

For serious. This is the moment you wish freezers had windows, so you could press your little nose against it in anticipation.

After a few hours, your Christmas Crunch Cake is ready. For best slicing, pull it from the freezer about 10 minutes before you’re ready to eat so it has a moment to soften.

Then grab a fork. Your crunchy Christmas awaits!
