CRUNCHIES – The Yvonne way


The perfect weekend treat. There are different ways that we can enjoy a crunchie treat –
• With coffee or tea dip it and eat it
• With ice-cream for dessert
• On its own
• Any way you like it


Golden, toasted crunchies cut into imperfect squares are often what a great snack, a heart-to-heart tea or any other silly but pertinent kitchen counter moment is made of.

Like in our kitchen it is in a giant glass container, to lure the grand-kids into temptation to come and play at oupa and ouma’s house. Never mind the sugar rush that is mom and dad’s problem.


We hope this easy recipe for crunchies keeps your kids, grand-kids and guests happy and your hunger momentarily abated.
