Directions

  • 1 In large bowl, mix cereal and chopped cookies. In 2-quart nonstick saucepan, melt butter. Add marshmallows; cook and stir over medium-low heat until marshmallows are completely melted. Pour over cereal mixture; mix until coated.
  • 2 Line cookie sheet with waxed paper; spray paper with cooking spray. Spray 3 3/4-inch open gingerbread man cookie cutter with cooking spray; place on cookie sheet. Spray hands well with cooking spray. Firmly pack cereal mixture evenly into cookie cutter, filling cutter completely; push out of cutter. Repeat until all mixture is used. Let stand until set.
  • 3 In small resealable freezer plastic bag, place baking chips and oil; seal bag. Microwave on High about 1 minute or until softened. Gently squeeze bag until mixture is smooth. Refrigerate 2 minutes or until slightly set. Cut off tiny corner of bag; squeeze bag to pipe melted chips over cookies as desired to decorate, using small dots to attach candy. When decorations are set, cut strips of fruit snack and tie around necks for scarves.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

The marshmallow mixture is sticky. Letting it stand for a few minutes decreases the stickiness. It is also helpful to spray a rubber scraper with cooking spray for mixing the marshmallows into the cereal. Also, spray your hands very well to press the mixture into the cookie cutters.

Chop the cookies by hand as you would onions, or crumble them and pulse in a food processor until they are about 1/4-inch pieces. Do not overprocess.
