Food Friday: Peanut Butter Cheerio Treats

DSC_3758
I know I said it October & November would be Fall recipes but there is nothing I love better on a cool fall day that cuddled up in blanket with a big bowl of cereal. No matter how old I get there will always be one cereal that I will always love and crave- Cheerios! Now that they are creating cheerios in flavors I just can't get enough. Apple & Cinnamon, Fruit & Yogurt, Caramel, Banana, and my absolute favorite- Peanut Butter! When I saw this Peanut Butter Cheerio Treats on Pinterest the other day I knew I had to make them over the weekend. Not only would the young kids love them but I knew the older "kids" would as well. As always, this recipe is simple, quick, and not very expensive. Perfect for a hungry girl on a budget. {Recipe at the bottom or print here}

The best part of this recipe is that it doesn't use the whole box of cheerios so there will be plenty for you to have a bowl of cereal the next day. Just don't forget the milk!

Happy Weekend!!

Ingredients:
6 cups Peanut Butter Cheerios
2 Tablespoons butter
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
10 ounces (approx. 40 ) regular sized marshmallows
1 cup chocolate chips

Directions:
-Prep a 9×13 pan with cooking spray or buttered parchment.
-In a pan over medium high heat melt the butter and peanut butter. Add in the marshmallows until you get a nice gooey mess.
-Add the Peanut Butter Cheerios and stir to combine making sure all of the cereal gets coated.
-Press into the prepped pan and while the cereal are still warm, sprinkle the chocolate chips on top so they melt slightly.
-Let cool and cut into squares. These taste best if served the same day.
