I wanted to make these yesterday, but my grocery store didn’t have any Peanut Butter Cap ‘N Crunch (or advent calendars…..Fuzz desperately wants an advent calendar and everyone is out).
I’m posting this Weird Wonders recipe here for those of you who either keep Peanut Butter Cap ‘N Crunch around or are just looking for an excuse to buy some. When I get around to making these, I’ll post a picture.
3 large egg whites, room temp
1 cup granulated sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 ½ cups Peanut Butter Captain Crunch cereal
½ cup chopped walnuts (toasted first)
1 cup chocolate chips (semi-sweet)
1 cup shredded coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line 2 cookie sheets with parchment.
In a mixing bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Gradually add sugar. Add salt. Continue beating until stiff. Add vanilla. Fold in cereal, nuts, chocolate and coconut.
Drop the batter by teaspoonfuls on to the parchment paper, fitting as many as you can onto each sheet (book says they don’t spread). Place in the preheated oven, turn oven off, shut door, and leave in closed oven for 3 hours.
Store in covered containers.
Makes 4 dozen.
