From the Kitchen - Outside the Nest

Cookie Withdrawal
I made it 10 days without a cookie.
No, I didn't say I made it 10 days without sweets.
But, cookies are a permanent part of my daily diet, and I managed to deprive myself.
So, when I decided to do something about that, 
I did it big. As in, mega sweets.

This recipe has four ingredients.
The amounts of each are easy to remember.
Which means, I can make 2 cookies, or too many, depending on my mood that particular day. Today, I made 8.

First I measure the cereal into a reclosable bag, and then I smack it into bits.
Other cereals would work as well, like, Toasty Oatty-O's, Corny Flakes, Snap-Crackle-Pops Crispies.
The beginning size will determine how much smacking will take place to reach the end size.

Next the 'wet' ingredients are placed in a micro-wave safe vessel,

 and heated gently until they are melted and smooth and luscious.

Dump in the smacked cereal crumbles, give it a stir.

Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper, and refrigerate.

Warning, these are so goodly sweet, that a glass of milk or cup of coffee is an absolute must. I can't even eat my normal 3(my 3 cookie-per-sitting rule).
Are they ever good.
Happy Saturday
