I have been posting a lot of main dishes lately. I can't help it, when it is so stinkin' cold out, all you want to make and talk about is the warm, gooey, and yummy stuff. Not to mention the whole trying to eat healthy after the holidays thing. Anyway, as I was looking through my food photos of recipes to post, I saw this little gem I made back in sunnier days. Now, I am not sure how many of you have had Chocolate Cheerios yet, but can I just say they are FABULOUS?!?! Dry as a snack, or with milk...they totally ROCK! And guess what? When you use them in this recipe, holy chocolate and peanut butter Batman, it is a winner! This was a fabulous treat for the kiddos and the adults too!
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup corn syrup
- 1 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 5 cups Cheerios (I used 1/2 chocolate and 1/2 regular...or maybe 2/3 chocolate and 1/3 regular...whatever, don't judge me.)
Allow mixture to boil for one minute and remove from heat.
Add peanut butter and vanilla to mixture and mix until smooth.
Add Cheerios and mix until all coated.
Drop mixture by spoonful onto waxed paper and allow to cool.
