Not quite a cookie, nor a dessert, but plenty good! My neighbor brought over this recipe and we found it very yummy. It would be a great no-bake holiday goody. About as good a whole wheat treat as you'll find (LOL).
3-1/2 oz. / 100 g. milk chocolate (milk chocolate chips work fine)
3-1/2 oz. / 100 g. semisweet chocolate (semisweet choc. chips)
4-1/2 T. butter
1 T. sugar
4 shredded wheat biscuits (the big ones)
1/2 c. chopped nuts
1 T. candied cherries, chopped, or dried cranberries
vegetable oil, for brushing
***Grainlady Note: If you don't have a kitchen scale to measure the chocolate... 100 g. of chocolate chips = 2/3 c.
1. Break the chocolate into small pieces (or just pour in chocolate chips) and put in a heatproof bowl with the butter. Set the bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water (making sure the bowl doesn't touch the water) to melt. When the chocolate and butter have melted, stir in the sugar. Then remove from the heat and let cool until just warm.
2. Meanwhile, use your hands to break up the shredded wheat biscuits into fine strands. Place in a bowl, and stir in the nuts and cherries. Lightly oil a baking sheet.
3. Stir the just-warm chocolate into the shredded wheat biscuit mixture, then use your hands to mold it into 6 balls. Put them on the baking sheet and chill in the refrigerator for about 1-hour, until set.
Grainlady Notes: My neighbor spooned the mixture onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and the recipe filled the sheet. She made them small (2-bite size) using a teaspoon. I don't know who could possibly eat 1/6 of this recipe - it would kill you!!!
-Use butterscotch chips for one of the chocolate chips.
-Add some instant coffee/expresso powder/pure coffee extract for an "adult" coffee-flavored treat.
-Any kind of nut you would like to use would work - or no nuts at all.
-If you have any freeze-dried fruit (strawberries, raspberries, etc.) they would be yummy in this recipe. Neighbor used dried cranberries.

This is kinda funny... just yesterday I was just trying to think what I was gonna do with the 3 boxes of shredded wheat cereal that my roomie brought home from the 'free cart' where he works. We've already eaten 3 or 4 boxes and I'm sick of it as cereal... I didn't realize you could 'bake' with it.
I'm sure this will be a hit !!
P.S. Do you have any ideas what to do with the 3 boxes of Grape Nuts cereal...LOL? (We've already used about 5 boxes of it as both cereal and made muffins and energy bars with 'em).
