Addicting Snacks

Notice that "someone" has already taken some!

I cannot believe I am saying this, but I’m actually addicted to something that is halfway nutritious. Don’t faint, I did say, halfway…you know me, I’m more into butter, chocolate, cheese and sugar that sushi, greens or tofu, but I have to admit that this snack with it’s Cheerios (yes, that’s the half that is health) is so addicting I can eat half a pan before you can say, “just throw another stick of butter into it for good measure.”

My precious friend, Cora made these one day because her grandkids were coming in town and she said that they always requested that she make these treats for them. Today, getting so excited about our some of our grandchildren coming into town tomorrow, I am making them. I hope there is some left by tomorrow, if not, will be headed back to the store for more Cheerios. Since there is no sour cream, cream cheese or butter in Cheerios, that is not something I keep on the shelf.

Melt in the microwave:

3 tables butter

10 oz miniature marshmallows

1/2 cup peanut butter, creamy or crunchy

Melt, stirring after a min and then nuke another minute.


5 cups plain cheerios

1 cup M&M’s (plain or peanut)

Mix well and quickly–it cools before you realize and becomes unworkable

Press into a 9×13 pan which has been sprayed lightly with Pam. Cut into squares.
