1. Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. In medium saucepan, melt candy coating over low heat, stirring constantly. 

2. Add remaining ingredients; toss to coat. Spread mixture thinly on waxed paper-lined cookie sheet. Cool 30 minutes or until set. Break into pieces.

Oreo's Dipped in Vanilla:
Take a package of vanilla chips or bark and melt...
