  • 2 cups Smashed Graham Crackers
  • 1 Cup Salted Cashew Pieces
  • 11-12 oz Bag of Good White Chocolate Chips


  • Prepare a baking sheet or other flat surface with a large piece of parchment paper.
  • Smash up about a sleeve worth of graham crackers, into bite sized pieces. Measure two cups of the graham bits into a large bowl.
    I measured out chunks AND the fine particles, which makes the Clodhoppers as shown. For a “prettier” candy, don’t include the fine particles in your measurement. Add cashews, stir lightly to distribute.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate chips – I usually do 45 second increments, stirring in between each.
  • When chocolate is fully melted, pour over graham/cashew mixture, stir well to coat everything. Turn mixture out onto parchment paper, spreading mixture out to form bite sized chunks.
  • Cool until set, store in airtight bags / containers.
