Honey Nut Cheerio TreatsThis honey nut cheerio treats recipe has definitely become my favorite.  I don’t think I will ever make rice krispie treats again. I love chocolate and peanut butter and the addition of marshmallows and honey give them a taste I can’t resist.  You can double this recipe but I would eat them all if I did.  This is a great recipe to let your children or grandchildren help you with and then they get to eat the treats.  Make them for any holiday or just anytime you want something sweet.  I love just grabbing one of these when I get hungry for a snack.  They keep well in an airtight container in a cool place.  A quick, easy recipe you will make over and over again.

1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup peanut butter (I use Kroger’s Roasted Peanuts and Honey Peanut Butter to make these) You can use smooth or crunchy peanut butter and any kind you like.)
3 cups honey nut cheerios
1/2 cup miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup chocolate chips
 
Combine corn syrup, sugar, honey and peanut butter in a large sauce pan.  Bring to a boil and boil 2 minutes, stirring constantly.  Remove from heat and combine with cereal, marshmallows and chocolate chips. Drop by spoonfuls on wax paper.  Makes about 24 treats depending on size you make them.  Enjoy!
 
Note:  You could press these into a 9 x 9  sprayed dish and cut into pieces.
