4 cups Fruity Pebbles cereal
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
8 ounces white candy coating
2 tablespoons shortening
1/8 teaspoon lemon extract, optional
Place cereal in a food processor; process until finely crushed. Add cream cheese; process until blended. Shape into 1-in. balls. Coat bottom of a glass with cooking spray, then dip into sugar. Press cookies with bottom of glass to flatten to 1/4-in. thickness; re-dip glass in sugar as needed. Freeze 30 minutes or until firm.
In a microwave, melt candy coating and shortening; stir until smooth. If desired, stir in lemon extract. Dip cookies in coating mixture; allow excess to drip off. Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets. If desired, immediately decorate with sprinkles. Store between layers of waxed paper in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
