Peanut Butter Cheerio Crunch - The Southern Lady CooksPeanut butter cheerio crunch is a quick and easy, crunchy treat that children and adults will both like.  Make it for as a project with children or grandchildren.  Give it for a gift to a neighborhood child or just make it as a snack for anytime.  This peanut butter cheerio crunch is a good way to use up cheerios you have on hand that may be nearing the date of freshness.  I always make this during the Christmas holidays and it never lasts long at my house.  You can double this recipe.  It keeps well in a cool place or in the fridge.  You might also like our recipe for Rolo Pretzel Turtles.

Peanut butter cheerio crunch is a delicious snack.

2 cups miniature marshmallows

1/4 stick butter or 4 tablespoons

1/4 cup smooth peanut butter

2 cups honey nut cheerios or just plain cheerios

1/2 cup peanuts or could use your favorite nuts

1/2 cup red and green M & M’s of your choice

Melt marshmallows, peanut butter and butter in the microwave or on top of the stove stirring often until smooth.  Microwaves vary but mine takes about 2 minutes to melt.  Remove and let cool about 15 minutes.  Combine cheerios, nuts, and M & M’s in a large bowl and pour the melted peanut butter mixture over them.  Stir to mix.  Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Let cool totally.  Makes about 2 dozen treats.  Enjoy!

Note: You can press this into a 9 x 13 baking dish and cut into squares once it sets up if you don’t want to do the drop method.
