These ooey-gooey dessert bites are made with Cheerios, raisins, nuts, cinnamon and vanilla. Ready in only 30 minutes, they're fun birthday party treats.
cup warm water
cup roasted whole almonds
teaspoon ground cinnamon
cup coarsely crushed Cheerios™ cereal
In medium bowl, soak raisins in water 10 minutes or until plump. Drain; pat dry.
In bowl of food processor, add raisins and all remaining ingredients except cereal. Cover; process, stopping to scrape side of bowl if necessary, until mixture forms a thick, sticky paste. (You can add a little water if mixture is not sticky enough.)
Roll mixture into 12 balls with moistened hands. In shallow dish, place cereal. Roll balls in cereal to coat. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
If you prefer, granola can be substituted for the almonds.
