  • Other ideas
    • Charcuterie Board – Sweet or savoury, charcuterie boards can be anything you want them to be. We like to start with a base of deli meat, cheese and crackers (a few options of each). Add some grapes or mandarin orange slices and then bring in other little goodies to add variety, such as Pharmasave’s Quicktreats chocolate covered almonds, cashews or trailmix. Spice it up with a couple of condiments like hot mustard and red pepper jelly and you have a delightful charcuterie board sure to please any craving.
      Prefer a vegetarian or dessert charcuterie board instead? Our Quicktreats chocolates and nuts are the perfect accompaniment for those options as well.
    • Spiced Nuts – A holiday treat or perfect as a salad topper, our Quicktreats nuts (Cashews, Almonds or Deluxe Mixed Nuts) are the perfect base for any spiced nut recipe.
    • Trailmix – Great on its own, but even better when you add extra ingredients to jazz it up for the holidays. Start with Quicktreats Trailmix as the base and add in cereal pieces like Chex, Shreddies or Cheerios; mini pretzels; small crackers; colourful chocolate candies or spicy wasabi peas.
    • Coffee Drinks – Great Company Coffee Pods are perfect for any time you need a little pick me up to keep you going through the holiday craziness or keep you warm and cozy on cold winter nights. Available in four delicious roasts, brew some Great Company Coffee, add a flavoured cream or liqueur and a spritz of whipped cream and you have a delicious treat day or night.

See our flyer for deals on select Quicktreats nuts and chocolates and Great Company Coffee from Dec 3 – 9, 2021 at participating Pharmasave stores.

Prep. Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 2 x 200g Quicktreats Rosebuds bags
  • 3/4 cup Quicktreats Deluxe Mixed Nuts, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Coconut
  • Optional Flaked Sea Salt (for top)

Instructions

  1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Toast coarsely chopped nuts and coconut in a 350-degree F. preheated oven for 9-10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a double boiler on the stove at medium high heat, melt 2 bags of Quicktreats Rosebuds; stir until smooth.
  4. Remove toasted nuts and coconut from oven.
  5. Line 9”x13” pan with parchment paper and pour melted chocolate over paper. Spread chocolate out evenly with offset spatula and sprinkle coarsely chopped nuts then toasted coconut over chocolate.
  6. Top with flaked sea salt (if using) and let bark set at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
  7. Break bark into chunks and enjoy.

Topping options:
Anything goes! Try broken pretzels, Quicktreats Trail Mix, crushed candy canes or whatever nut, dried fruit and/or potato chip you like. Drizzling bark with white or dark chocolate also makes for an elevated bark.

Shortbread Nut Bars Recipe

Shortbread Nut Bar made with Quicktreats nuts.

Prep. Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup plus 4 tablespoons cold butter, divided
  • 1 ½ cup butterscotch chips
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • ¼ tsp of salt
  • 2 packages of quicktreats mixed nuts 300g, chopped very coarsely
  • Optional flaked sea salt for top (if you do not have this, use coarse and bash a bit prior to sprinkling)

Instructions

  1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar and salt. Cut in 1/2 cup butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, in a pot on the stove at medium high heat, brown 4 tbsp of butter and once browned, melt in butterscotch chips; stir until smooth. Stir in corn syrup and pinch of salt.
  4. Sprinkle coarsely chopped nuts over crust; top with butterscotch mixture evenly spreading. Bake 10 minutes longer or until set. Remove from oven and sprinkle flaked sea salt now if using. Cool on a wire rack. Cut into bars.

Notes:

  • Any type of nut or nuts can be used.
  • Parchment paper makes the bar very easy to lift out of the pan and cut once cooled.
  • Vanilla and cinnamon would also work well in the crust and butterscotch
