Honey Nut Cherrios Peanut Butter Bars (recipe)

We are a cereal family. I love cereal. My husband loves cereal. The kids love cereal.
We eat it for breakfast...and snacks.
But I wanted to come up with a new way to eat cereal...
something to eat on the go and great for snacking at school.

  1. Send some my way, Holly! These look fantastic. :)

  2. How awesome are those! Never would have thought of using cherries. Very clever.

  3. Very cute! And I LOVE the new blog design!!

  4. Those sound really good! We love cereal too.

  5. Mia's a Honeynut Cheerio freak... we'll be making these!

  6. Do you have to use marshmallows?

    1. Jasmine - You come up as a no-rely blogger...so I could not email you...hope you see this:
      I suppose there are substitutes for the marshmallows. I have not experimented with this at all. I make these cherry nut cups that use melted chocolate to hold them together.


Thanks for stopping by and joining the conversation! I sure hope you come back for more!
