While browsing Pinterest, food is one of the things that ALWAYS catches my eye. These fun treats make the perfect on-the-go snack and they satisfy any sweet tooth. They are perfect to throw in your bag, to eat at your desk, or as a fun breakfast on your way to your internship. You can also make them in a pan, like Rice Krispie Treats!
• 1 c. sugar
• 1 c. corn syrup
• 1 c. creamy peanut butter
• 1 t. vanilla
• 5 c. Cheerios (I used Honey Nut Cheerios)
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.
Makes approximately 2 dozen.
