Gregg asked me this evening why I was baking so much!  What !!!  I always baking at Christmas time.  Well, I used to.  Guess I haven't in several years.  Maybe its all a part of trying to get into the Holiday spirit.  It's kinda working.  Of course, with it comes another 5-10 pounds on top of what I've already gained.

Anyway, tonight I made "Special K Cookies".  Well, in reality they really aren't Special K cookies.  The recipe calls for Special K Cereal but mom never made it with Special K cereal.  She always used Rice Krispie cereal.  So I guess they are Rice Krispie Cookies instead. 

Gregg asked if he would like them.
I said no, they have coconut in them and William won't like them either. 
William says "I like coconut". 
Oh okay.  Guess you will like them then. 
When I gave William one, he asked.  Do they have almonds in them. 
No, No almonds.  (He didn't ask if they had pecans!  Haha!).  He loved them. 
Then after about three, he says they do too have almonds in them . 
No they don't, those are pecans. 
He said you know what I meant.  I don't like them. 
Really?!  You have ate at least half a dozen and now because you think there are nuts in them, you don't like them!  Good, that's more for me.  Make that 10-15 pounds! 
Here is the recipe for them.


1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup Karo syrup
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup coconut
2 cups Rice Krispie Cereal
1/2 cup pecans (chopped optional) When I use Missouri pecans I don't chop them as they are much smaller but when I use Texas pecans, I chop them a little as they are so big) 

Stir sugar and syrup together in large sauce pan.  Bring to a boil.  Add peanut butter and stir till melted.  Remove from stove.  Add cereal, coconut, and pecans.  Stir till well coated.  Drop by spoonful on waxed paper.  Let cool.  Store in air tight container.

  1. Hi Doris...I've made these using corn flakes and bran flakes too. I go with whatever cereal is in the cupboard...they'll eat them anyway.
