Winter Fruit Cobbler Recipe

What do you do with all those wonderful fruit baskets you received over the holidays? Sure, you eat the fruit, as much as you can. But what about when the fruit has set long enough and nobody’s eating the raw items any longer. Because every family has a point at which the fresh fruit snacking maxes out and they reach for a packaged sugar filled snack instead of the fruit. If you’re like me, you dread that moment, because the fruit is delicious, healthy and pretty. But you don’t want it to go to waste and end up in the garbage. Besides, somebody who loves us very much cared enough to send us that good fruit and we should eat it, by gosh!  The solution, turn it into a new dish, that doesn’t quite look like fresh fruit, but takes advantage of all that flavor.

This cookie isn’t really a cookie, but it is a very popular snack with the folks. Kids and adults gobble them up. You may know this treat by another name: Rice Krispies Treat. I wanted something colorful and fun, so I bought a box of puffed rice cereal that featured multi-colored pieces. These would make great treats at a baby shower, or mother – daughter tea party, so you might want to clip this recipe and save it for later!
