Chocolate Quickie Cluster

Chocolate Quickie Cluster

   Can you believe  that chow mein noodles work amazingly well in a cookie recipe? It’s true , they do. These are sweetly crunchy, with just a hint of salty contrast. Reminds me of Phyllis, who always likes a bite of pretzel after her dish of sugar-free, fat-free ice cream!

            Serves 12 (2 each)

½ cup mini chocolate chips
¼ cup SPLENDA* Granular
1 tablespoon water
1 cup coarsely chopped chow mein noodles
 ½ cup miniature marshmallows

 Place a large piece of waxed paper on a baking sheet. Place chocolate chips in an 8-cup glass microwaveable measuring cup. Microwave on HIGH (100% power ) for 1 ½ minutes or until chips are melted , stirring every 30 seconds. Stir in SPLENDA* and water. Add chow mein noodles marshmallows. Mix gently by teaspoonful onto prepared baking sheet to form 24 clusters. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
