Well yesterday, life outside of blogging happened and the recipe I was going to post was a disaster, so I missed a day. I will still post 12 treats, however.
Today’s treat makes use of dabs of cereal that you might have on hand. I used Cheerios, Kix, Peanut Butter Captain Crunch and Rice Krispies. You can use 4 cups of any cereal you want, but flaked cereals do not work that well in this recipe. If you like nuts, 1 cup coarsely chopped nuts can be added.
This is quick and easy, the hardest part being stirring the candy coating until smooth. The drops will keep for several days tightly covered.
Snow Covered Cereal Drops
1 c. Rice Krispies
1 c. Kix
1 c. Multigrain Cheerios Dark Chocolate Crunch
1 c. Peanut Butter Captain Crunch
1 c. mini marshmallows
1 c. coarsely chopped nuts (opt.)
1 pkg. (20-24 oz.) White Candy Coating
Combine cereals, marshmallows and nuts, if using, in a large bowl. Melt the candy coating in the microwave or on the stovetop following the package directions. Make sure that the coating is smooth. Stir the cereal and marshmallows into the coating. Drop by tablespoonsful onto wax paper. Let set until firm. Makes about 60 drops.
