Peanut Butter Cheerios Bars

Cheerio bars
Review by Lyndee:

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 bars were easy to make.  They cost about $4.50 because all I had to buy was the cereal and marshmallows.  Everything else, I had on hand.  They tasted pretty good. Not as ooey gooey as I would’ve liked.  Next time I would use ½ cup of peanut butter instead of 1/3.  I should’ve put the chocolate chips on quicker because they didn’t melt very well and then fell off sometimes when you would bite into the bars.  Emma and Jackson devoured these so they were definitely a hit overall. I was just hoping for a little bit more of the peanut butter flavor.
