1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 cup peanut butter
1 1/3 cup crisp rice cereal
1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. mini semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup maraschino cherries, drained, dried and chopped
1 to 2 cups flaked coconut (for rolling)
In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, sugar, and peanut butter. Stir in cereal, chips, pecans, and cherries. Mix well. Shape teaspoons of dough into 1-inch balls. Roll in coconut. Put on cookie sheet; chill in refrigerator 1 hour. Store refrigerated. Makes about 3 dozen.
They already look good.
My daughter does not care for coconut so I left some without coconut on them.
And these are the finished product!
