Peanut Butter Cheerio Bars


I made these delish Peanut Butter Cheerio Bars today for my hubby...
It's Friday and I thought I'd make him a treat to munch on after the kids go to bed :)

These are made just like Rice Crispie Treats but with Cheerios instead. 

There are lots of flavor combination's you can do with this, but let me share this recipe first.

You will need:
10oz Bag of Marshmallows
1/4 Cup of Butter (half a stick)
8 Cups of Cheerios

Melt Butter and Marshmallows in pan on the stove on medium low heat.
Once it's all melty and creamy, add the 8 cups of Cheerios.
Stir until all the Cheerio's are coated, and put them in a 9x13 pan.
Or pan of your choice.
Press down to squish them together and make the top flat.
Let them cool, and then cut into squares.

Then you can devour this little baby...doesn't it look good?!
With my bars, after I pressed them down in the pan, I sprinkled some Mini Reeces Pieces on top..for a little extra kicker.

Now let's talk flavor combo's...
Cheerios have so many flavors out now..
Banana, Chocolate, Honey Nut, Caramel...just to name a few.
Mix and match, or use flavored Marshmallows like Chocolate.

You can add in extras like I did with the Reeces, such as:
Chocolate Chips (white, milk, dark chocolate, butterscotch, peanut butter)
Dried Cranberries
Nuts (Peanuts, Cashews, Almonds)
Cupcake Sprinkles

Lot's of options here make them as plain as you'd like or get crazy with it and make up some real flavorful treats!

These are so easy and quick to make.
