One day, staring at my pantry, I notice a good amount of peanut butter jars and boxes of Cheerios. They were piling up quickly, and on a limited food budget, I hated to waste anything. I noticed it had been increasingly difficult to to purchase and bake past sweet desserts. Food prices have just climbed so high, that an average cake is costing $8 to bake! Definitely not part of this new budget. I am always on a new quest to find healthier desserts because I have two teenage boys. After scouring the internet, I came across this adapted recipe of an all time favorite.
1 package of chocolate or semi sweet morsels
1 cup of peanut butter
3 cups of Cheerios (or any other cereal on hand)
1 cup of mini marshmallows
Put chocolate and peanut butter in a microwaveable bowl. Microwave on high for one minute. Bring out, and stir. Put it back in for another minute, bring out and stir. Keep up this process till the chocolate is melted and is a smooth consistency with the peanut butter. Let the mixture cool for five minutes. Add cereal and marshmallows. Mix well. Drop by tablespoon full on waxed paper. Put in refrigerator for 30 minutes. I keep these in an airtight container in the refrigerator to ensure freshness.
