Cranberry-Vanilla Cereal Drops
Ingredients
3
cups cranberry-vanilla crunch cereal
1 1/2
cups tiny marshmallows
1 1/2
cups macadamia nuts (toasted, if desired) or mixed nuts, chopped
1/2
cup dried cranberries
1 1/4
pounds vanilla-flavor candy coating, cut up
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.
