Cheerio® Treats

I make these for Dillon.They are healthy. After I made this batch I let Boo have one.(that’s what we call the little girl I keep. When she was little she looked like the girl, Boo, in the movie Monster’s Inc.) Anyway, she loved them!!! She told me I was a good “cooker.” Best compliment ever!!!

These were made with the Oat Cluster Cheerio Crunch®.

I got this recipe at Cheerios.com/recipes

 

Ingredients

5 cups Cheerios (any flavor)

1/3 cup nuts (optional)

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1 tsp. vanilla

  1. In a large bowl mix cereal and nuts.
  2. Heat corn syrup, sugar, and peanut butter to boiling over medium/high heat; stirring constantly. Boil for 1 minute more. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.
  3. Pour syrup mixture over cereal; toss to coat. Spread in a 9×13 inch pan and cool completely before cutting into bars. (I spray my pan with cooking spray.)
  4. Best kept in individual snack bags. They get sticky!!!!!

Try adding any of the following; raisins, chocolate chips, shredded coconut, or drizzle with chocolate.
