Cap'n Crunch Candy and Cap'n Crunch Crunch Cookies

My wife got this recipe from a friend in the late seventies. We made them this year. They are perfect for Christmas.
In the original recipe it refers to 2# of Chocolate. That's 2 pounds. Anne adapted it to bags of White Chocolate Chips.

Cap'n Crunch Candy

2 C Rice Krispies Cereal
2 C Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch Cereal (Christmas, I use Cap'n Crunch Christmas Cereal))
1 C Dry Roasted Peanuts, whole
2 C Miniature Marshmallows (Christmas, I use colored Miniature Marshmallows)
2 -(11oz) bags of White Chocolate Chips

In a large mixing bowl:
Rice Krispies
Cap'n Crunch
Stir to combine well.

Melt the Chocolate, just until melted but not too hot.
Drizzle it over the mix, Gently fold it in.
Drop by the spoonful onto waxed paper.
Allow to cool completely.

Peace in the Kitchen!

I happen to love Cap'n Crunch Cereal. It was always my favorite cereal as a child and continued to be as an adult.
What a perfect cookie recipe for me, and........ maybe for you too!

Cap'n Crunch's Crunch Berries Cereal Cookies:

1 1/4 C flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
1/3 C butter, softened
1 C granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp orange extract
2 C Cap'n Crunch's Crunch Berries Cereal. (for Halloween I use Peanut Butter Crunch Cereal and I make them for Christmas with Cap'n Crunch Christmas Cereal)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

In a bowl:
Baking Soda
Whisk well and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, using an electric hand mixer:
Beat until creamy.
Orange Extract

Gradually add dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.
Fold in the cereal by hand.

Using a 1 1/2" cookie scoop, drop cookies 2" apart onto a parchment paper lined sheet pan.
Bake for 11 - 13 minutes.
Transfer the pan to a cooling rack for 10 minutes.
Transfer the cookies to the rack and cool completely.
