Featuring crunchy cereal, colorful candies, pecans and loads of peanut butter flavor, these chocolaty bites offer plenty of make-ahead convenience. "They're easy to whip up when you're in a hurry," notes Debbie Zorn from Vidalia, Georgia.
You'll relish this guilt-free take on a classic cookie, enhanced with cranberries and luscious dark chocolate. “My son is diabetic, and he loves these,” says Ramona Cornell of Levittown, New York. “A co-worker calls them 'a piece of coconut heaven'.”
My mother had this recipe in her cookie collection and she and I began baking these when I was a young teen. There is no sugar among the ingredients, just the subtle taste of marmalade to add sweetness. It's a soft cookie with an interesting combination of orange and chocolate.
When my husband came home from the grocery store with six bags of fresh cranberries, I launched a full scale effort to creatively use them all. Bursting with tart cranberry and sweet coconut flavor, these tasty bites are my favorite result from that experiment.
It's such a pleasure to serve delicious cookies like these to neighbors and family. I love to bake cookies more than anything else. My four young daughters are eager to help with mixing, measuring and stirring!
