Peanut Butter Cheerios Treats

Over the last several months, I’ve noticed that Joe is very interested in what I’m doing in the kitchen. He’s always asking questions on how things work and why (like any inquisitve 4 year old) and always wants to watch. When I saw this recipe on Pinterest, I saved it knowing it would be a good one to try with him. Baby boy was pretty sick one weekend, and Joe was getting restless since we were stuck at home, so I decided to pull this recipe out and give it a go. These treats are made just like Rice Krispie treats and were very fun to make with my tiny man! The flavor was great and we ate the entire pan over that weekend. If you’re looking for a fun treat for your kids to eat (and help make!), I recommend these for sure!

Peanut Butter Cheerios Treats

6 cups Peanut Butter Cheerios
2 Tablespoons butter
1/3 cup smooth peanut butter
10 ounces (approx. 40 ) regular sized marshmallows
1 cup chocolate chips

Prep a 9×13 pan with cooking spray or buttered parchment. In a pan over medium high heat melt the butter and peanut butter. Add in the marshmallows until you get a nice gooey mess. Add the Peanut Butter Cheerios and stir to combine making sure all of the cereal gets coated. Press into the prepped pan and while the cereal is still warm, sprinkle the chocolate chips on top so they melt slightly. Let cool and cut into squares. These taste best if served the same day.
