1 point Haystack Cookie recipe

So... this is my first attempt at sharing a recipe. If I don't do a good job, you could always head over to wwchicks blog and watch her video.

So... first things first, here is what you are gonna need:
You will need:

2 Cups Original Fiber One cereal

1/2 Cup Peanut butter(any kind... not reduced fat!)

1/2 Cup Chocolate Chips(semi-sweet) (now... this is just how I prefer to make them, but you can also use a cookie sheet lined in foil or wax paper)

18 cupcake wrappers in a cupcake tin
(the regular size, not the mini)

A microwaveable mixing bowl, and measuring cup.
If you have the measuring cup from Pampered Chef... it works GREAT!

Measure out 1/2 cup of peanut butter

1/2 cup of Semi-Sweet Chocolate chips

Stop to take a picture of your adorably cute little girl
who is laughing at her daddy!

OK... So I forgot to take a pic of the peanut butter and chocolate in the bowl before you melt... but just imagine it... Mmmm... the aroma of that yummy usually-forbidden peanut butter! MMMM....

OK... back on topic...
You microwave for approximately 1 minute(some microwaves take longer, but start out at a minute and then add 30 second increments if it is not melted enough)
This is what it will look like after 1 minute in the mic

So.. you will mix this together....

Until it is nice and creamy and the pretty chocolatey color.

Then you will add in the 2 cups of Fiber One Cereal

You will need to mix this all together until all of the cereal is fully coated

Like this:

From here...
you will just divide into even amounts into your cupcake wrappers,
until you have 18 equal size cookies.

Then, put them in your fridge

(hopefully it is not nearly as nasty as mine is... I am so embarassed!)

Of course... the funnest part of making these cookies...

is licking the spoon! Yummy...

sorry for the horrible picture... I had a long day! LOL!

So... Once they have chilled for a little while, and in this case,
while I was gone bowling last night... they come out looking like this:

Side note: To my pregnant friends... this is a great treat if you having that problem that most pregnant girls get... (you know... the not being about to "go" problem). They are packed with fiber and work like a charm! :) So...
Hope you all enjoy this yummy treat!!!
