Recipe – Cheerio Treats

IMG_7001

These are some of the easiest bars I have ever made.  They are basically like Rice Krispie bars, but use Cheerios, and add some peanut butter and M&Ms.  Simple enough, right?  They are a very tasty treat, and a good one for summer since you won’t need to heat up the oven.

To make this even easier for you, I’d recommend measuring all the ingredients ahead of time.  Then as stuff is ready you just grab the next ingredient and dump it in the bowl.

Cheerio Treats

3 Tablespoons butter
1 pkg. (10 1/2 oz) miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup peanut butter
5 cups cheerios
1 cup milk chocolate M&M’s

Place butter and marshmallows in a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 1-2 minutes or until melted. Stir in peanut butter until blended. Add the cereal and M & M’s. Spoon into greased 9 x 13-in pan. Press down gently. Cool slightly before cutting.
