I'm a big fan of both coconut macaroons and rice krispy treats so when I saw this I had to try it. This is a great twist on macaroons. It gives you the same flavor, but makes it a bit lighter with the cereal, and adds the vitamins that come with the krispies. Very easy to make, and hard to stop eating. I had some leftover coconut I'd colored for Easter, so I used that and they came out very pretty! You can easily color the coconut for any occasion and have a themed treat. Glad I found this one!
A Kitchen-Aid stand mixer makes this super easy. The paper is key as a lot of oil comes out of the coconut as it cooks. Delicious!!
These are delicous light cookies, and the rice crisp with the coconut give it an interesting texture. Thank You for sharing this recipe.
