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!!!
I got this recipe at Cheerios.com/recipes
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
- In a large bowl mix cereal and nuts.
- 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.
- 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.)
- Best kept in individual snack bags. They get sticky!!!!!
Try adding any of the following; raisins, chocolate chips, shredded coconut, or drizzle with chocolate.
