Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Phillipians 4:8

Cheerio Bars

When I get a nighttime hankering for something sweet, this recipe just fits the bill! It is something I made up based on a peanut butter/rice krispie treat recipe a couple of years ago. 

Cheerio Bars

Mix in a large bowl:

7 cups plain cheerios
1 cup dried cranberries
1 cup peanuts
1 cup plain m&ms

In medium sauce pan, combine:

1 cup sugar
1 cup corn syrup

Bring to boil for one minute, then stir in 1 cup peanut butter. Pour over cheerio mixture and stir until evenly coated. Press into 9x13 pan. Let cool and enjoy (if you can wait that long!!)

The next day, if they last that long, these can be a bit hard to bite. When that happens, I simply microwave one for 10-15 seconds to soften it up a bit again.

Great combination of goodies! Amy and I could eat this by simply substituting gluten-free cheerios!

Thanks Jennifer! They are great! ;) hard to stop eating though! Lol! I am taking a FB time-out for a bit - it was occupying too much of life's precious time!
