Vanilla Sundaes with Crisped Rice-and-Peanut Crunch

  • FAST
  1. Vegetable oil
  2. 1 cup crisped rice cereal
  3. 1/2 cup dry-roasted peanuts, coarsely chopped
  4. 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  5. Salt
  6. Vanilla ice cream and hot chocolate sauce, for serving
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Generously oil a rimmed baking sheet. In a bowl, toss the crisped rice and peanuts with the corn syrup until evenly coated; add a pinch of salt. Spread the mixture as thinly as possible on the baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, until crisp. While still warm, transfer the crunch to a plate; let cool. Break the crunch into large pieces.

Make Ahead The crunch can be stored overnight in an airtight container.
