“This is another recipe I used to make every Christmas as a kid, all by myself. Sticky, sweet, messy...I had so much fun making and eating them. Originally from the "Jones Farm Country Kitchen" community cookbook.”
READY IN:
18mins
YIELD:
3 dozen
UNITS:
US

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup dried coconut, shredded (I used the sweetened kind in bags)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 cups corn flakes cereal
  • candied cherry, halved (optional)

Directions

  1. Mix everything except the cherries together.
  2. Drop in small mounds onto parchment lined baking sheets (using 2 spoons to help smoosh the mixture into a mound - be patient here, it will look somewhat too loose, but as it cooks it melts together.
  3. Garnish with a cherry half if desired, pretty down gently.
  4. Bake about 8-10 minutes, in a preheated 350°F oven.
  5. Allow to cool a bit on the baking sheets before carefully removing to racks to cool - but not too long or they will harden up too much.
