These little guys are the easiest, most satisfying, little sweet-treats I have ever met.
Can you guess what they are? They are made of only two ingredients, which is why they fall under the Quick-QuickBite category. I couldn’t possibly film a video for recipe that only uses two ingredients!
And the mystery ingredients are…chocolate chips and fiber one cereal, that’s it!
Let me give you a little backround: First off these little creations were given to me by one of my best friends back in Jersey, Lisa (aka Keggs). She lost over 50 pounds with weight watchers about 5 years ago. She managed to keep off all of the weight until she became pregnant and had her two cutie kids (Jake and Ella). Now she’s back in the game and working off her last ten pounds of baby weight, she’s already lost the first 10, so she’s well on her way.
Lisa and I are can spend hours on the phone talking about what we’re gonna make for dinner, what we did make for dinner, what we’re thinking about making for dinner, what we ate over the weekend, what we’re planning on eating over the weekend… We literally can talk about food for hours on end, days in a row. Our husbands find this rather comical, we find this completly normal.
Anyhow, this is a recipe that Lisa found through Weight Watchers. They really hit the spot when you are looking for a little something sweet but don’t wanna go crazy. Oh, and did I mention that they are packed with fiber (who can’t use a litte extra fiber?). And for all of you Weight Watchers out there counting your points, each Haystack is only one point, so enjoy!!
Yield: Makes 24 Haystacks
- 1 bag of chocolate chips
- 1 sleeve of fiber one cereal (you can experiment with other cereals too!)
In a medium glass bowl, melt chocolate chips in the microwave. Once chips are melted stir in the cereal until it's all coated with chocolate.
Fill a mini muffin tray (this should hold 24 muffins) with about a tbsp. of chocloate coated cereal. Pop in the fridge for 15 minutes until chocolate is set, then pop out of tray and enjoy.
I usually store them in a plastic bag and keep them in the fridge for weeks!
