These are best stored indivdually wrapped in waxed paper and frozen --- here's a tip, if you plan on making these on a regular basis just keep all ingredients from step#5 already measured in a ziploc plastic bag in the fridge (except the egg) this will save some time when preparing, and there will be no measuring to do!

  5. Blend in granola, marshmallows, coconut, dates, raisins, cinnamon, cherries OR cranberries, salt, flour, rice crispies cereal, sesame seeds and pecans (if mixture does not hold together in a somewhat weird sticky way, stir in a bit more oil and one egg).
