Nancy Drew video [computer] games. They've played them all and love them all and love the HER Interactive website and blog. Earlier this month, HER Interactive hosted a cookie recipe contest. They came up with a recipe that would go with one of the mysteries, made a batch [yum!], we photo-ed them and then they submitted them to the website for a chance to win some Nancy Drew swag. [Good luck, Girls!!]
They had a lot of fun coming up with these cookies and they are darn good, too!
No-Bake Kapu Cave Coconut Clusters
1/2 stick butter (1/4 cup)
1 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup oats
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 chopped pistachios
Melt the butter and the chocolate chips in a small sauce pan on low.
Stir to try to combine. If the butter and chocolate refuse to combine,
don't worry. The cookies will be fine. Mix in the rest of the
ingredients and stir until well combined. (It will look dry and
crumbly.) Take off the heat and let cool for a minute while you line a
cookie sheet with wax paper. When cookie mixture is cool enough to
handle, roll into 1 inch balls. Let them finish cooling and setting up.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
Note: You can use sweetened coconut, but that makes them super sweet. They were plenty sweet without the extra sugar.
