Red Carpet Cookies and a Giveaway! #ChexRedCarpet

I love watching the Oscars and the count down to the show on March 2 is already on at my house. I know a few of you might think that it's a little early to be thinking about the Oscars, especially with the Olympics still being on, but I need time to plan.

Every year I love to create fun food to serve while we watch the Oscars that is themed around at least one of the movies up for an award. This year is no different and my movie of choice of Gravity. I loved Sandra Bullock's performance and I loved the adrenaline that came from watching the movie - there wasn't much about it I didn't like.

Well there was one part I wish had been different, but I won't spoil it for those of you who haven't seen it yet....

At first I thought I might just get a few astronaut ice cream sandwiches. That would be easy and fun. But after tasting one, I knew that could not be only themed treat I'd serve. They are fun to think about, but I wouldn't write home about how they taste.


So I racked my brain a little more and came up with a new approach. Instead of serving something that astronauts might eat in outer space, I'll serve something that resembles something in outer space - a moon to be exact.



I know you're going to try these easy Chex Moon Cookies so read on for my recipe. And also read on for an opportunity to win a great prize pack - perfect to use the next time you're serving a special dessert.

Chex Moon Cookies - makes 12 - 16 cookies

4 cups Chex cereal, I used Honey Nut Chex
2/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup butter
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup mini marshmallows or large marshmallows cut into smaller pieces
1/2 cup peanut butter or butterscotch chips

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2. Crush Chex cereal until fine and then combine with the sugar, peanut butter, butter, and egg. Batter will be wet but will bake into lovely cookies.

3. Roll mixture into balls, flatten, and place on the parchment lined cookie sheet.

4. Bake cookies for about 10 minutes and then remove from the oven. Top cookies with marshmallows and chips and bake another 5 minutes to allow the toppings to melt and resemble moon craters.

5. Cool Chex Moon Cookies and enjoy.
