Cocoa-Cinnamon Cereal Snacks
Looking for a new healthier breakfast recipe idea? Chocolate-y dried plum and crunchy cereal clusters are unusual, yet easy to make.
3 cups toasted rice, corn or wheat cereal squares
3/4 cup (about 5 ounces) chopped dried plums
2 cups miniature marshmallows
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Powdered sugar (optional)
In large bowl, combine cereal and dried plums; set aside. In medium saucepan, combine marshmallows, butter, cocoa powder, vanilla and cinnamon. Heat over low heat until marshmallows are melted and mixture is blended, stirring constantly; immediately pour over cereal and dried plums, stirring to coat. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls into paper muffin cups or onto wax paper-lined baking sheet. Refrigerate until set, about 1 hour. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, if desired. Store in airtight container in refrigerator.
