Cranberry-Vanilla Cereal Drops

Melted white candy coating holds puffy marshmallows, crunchy cereal, rich macadamia nuts and dried cranberries together in this quick and easy no-bake drop cookie. Store leftover macadamia nuts in the refrigerator; the rich nuts become rancid quickly when stored at room temperature.

Cranberry-Vanilla Cereal Drops

Directions

  1. Line two cookie sheets with waxed paper; set aside. In a microwave-safe large bowl, stir together cereal, marshmallows, nuts, and cranberries; set aside.
  2. In a heavy medium saucepan, melt candy coating over low heat, stirring constantly until smooth. Pour melted candy coating over cereal mixture; stir gently to coat. Quickly drop by rounded teaspoons onto prepared cookie sheets. (If mixture sets up in the bowl, microwave on 100 percent power [high] about 30 seconds or just until mixture is soft enough to drop by rounded teaspoons. Stir.) Let cookies stand about 1 hour or until set. Makes 60 drops.

From the Test Kitchen

Layer drops between waxed paper in an airtight container; cover. Store at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Prepare as directed, except substitute one 8-ounce package Turtle or Peanut Butter party mix, such as Chex Mix® brand,for the cereal, marshmallows, nuts, and cranberries, and substitute 10 ounces chocolate-flavored candy coating for the vanilla-flavored candy coating. Makes 36 drops.
