Welcome to the second installment of Cereal Treat Sunday. This week we are making Cheerio Treats. I wish they had a better, more creative name. Peanut Buttery Piles of O's, okay, that's horrible, let's stick with Cheerio Treats.
We are starting out with some super simple cereal treats for those who may be beginners in the cereal treat arena. ;) This one is nearly fool proof with only 5 ingredients.
Warning: If you have a peanut allergy steer clear of this one!
1 Cup Corn Syrup
1 Cup Sugar
Cook in sauce pan until boiling. Then allow to boil for 1 1/2 minutes. Remove from heat.
1 Cup Peanut Butter
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
Blend until peanut butter is melted and mixture is smooth. Pour over 5 cups Cheerios and mix until well coated. Drop by spoonfuls on to wax paper and let cool.
*Insider's tip: to measure sticky items like corn syrup and peanut butter easily, coat the measuring cup with a little cooking spray before using.
Voila, you are a Cheerio treat chef. Now go enjoy your peanut buttery piles of O's and we'll see you next week for another episode of Cereal Treat Sunday!
