Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerio Chewies

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!

Cheerio Chewies
  • 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.)
In a large sauce pan, combine sugar and corn syrup. Bring to boil over medium heat.
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.

  1. Kids would definitely go nuts over these (and me too since I love to eat chocolate and peanut butter together). I always start off by saying certain things would be good for kids but what I'm really saying is I would eat all these up if I didn't have a kid helping me eat

  2. Great idea for the kidlets, I have to have this our next movie night.

  3. These would be SO PERFECT for my kids!! Thanks for the idea : )

  4. What a yummy idea! You can go wrong with peanut butter and corn syrup!

  5. Ohhh these look eveil! Sticky and messy. I bet my kids would love them.

  6. You know you want The blogger awards have found their way to me (and now you) hee hee
