Cheerios Nuggets

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by sugarbaby

My Senior VP gave everybody a small canning jar filled with this one Christmas. I was skeptical but really loved it. Also, I found out that HE had made it--not his wife. So, I figured how hard can it be and had to get the recipe. I make it often at the holidays and leave it in a big bowl for people to grab. You can add just about anything you want to go with the Cheerios. I have used whatever M&Ms or chips/morsels I have at home.
