Makes: 60 servings
Serving size: 1 drop Yield: 60 drops
Prep 25 mins Stand 1 hr
Cranberry-Vanilla Cereal Drops
  • 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

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.
