Chewy Cheerio Treats

These chewy, crispy and lightly sweet treats can be whipped up in less than five minutes and are great as a snack or dessert.


1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups Cheerios

Over medium-high heat, bring the sugar and corn syrup to a gentle boil.  Boil for one minute (the longer you boil it, the harder your treats will be so if you'd like them soft, stick with one minute or less).  Remove from the heat and add peanut butter and vanilla, stirring until smooth.  Pour in the cheerios and mix until completely coated.

Place by the spoonful on wax paper and allow to cool slightly before serving.
Thank  you to Kathie Cooks for the recipe inspiration!
