|12 DAYS OF EASY SWEETS 2014|
Now I love to make no-bake cookies. They are usually very quick and easy so I can get a sweet into my mouth in the shortest possible time if I am having a craving. I decided to use the Chex instead of graham crackers in a favorite recipe. This is a cross between a cookie and a candy and is for all the cinnamon lovers out there. but watch out, these are quite addictive. If you don't eat them all, they are a great gift.
Cinnamon Chex Marshmallow Drops
3/4 cup butter or margarine (I always use butter)
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. cinnamon
2 cups crushed Cinnamon Chex cereal (about 3 3/4 c. uncrushed), crush to consistency of crushed graham crackers
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
2 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
1/2 c. chopped nuts (optional)
Combine butter, sugar, and eggs in a medium saucepan. Cook to a rolling boil, stirring constantly remove from heat and allow mixture to cool 15 to 20 minutes. Add the vanilla, cinnamon, crushed Cinnamon Chex cereal, coconut, marshmallows, and nuts, if using. Stir until well blended. Using two teaspoons, quickly drop by heaping teaspoonsful onto waxed paper or foil. Let stand until set, about 20 to 30 minutes. Makes about 45.
