Very interesting. A different snack for sure! I used 1/2 c. butter and about 4 1/2 c. Cheerios. I also added some Worcestershire sauce, some hot sauce and garlic powder. I used Lawrys for the salt. Watch carefully as these do burn....these will be made here again.
I haven't tried this recipe, but I make one that is almost just like this one!! Instead of salt, I use garlic salt. Sometimes I'll put soy sauce & worchester sauce in with the butter to give it more a tast like party mix. I can't beleive I saw this recipe on here! I thought I was the only one who ate stuff like this! I used to eat this when I was kid & now my daughter loves them too!
i add worchestershire sauce to my butter and i use popcorn salt and seasoned salt while it is frying, very yummy snack!
I used to make these back in the late '80's when I was in high school. I can remember people thought I was down right loopy. Now my brother-in-law is requesting the recipe.
I made this thinking it would be a bit bland. Also I was worried that I wouldn't get the ratio correct. After eyeballing the ingredients (instead of actually measuring,) I made a batch. This stuff is REALLY good. I added Lawry's seasoned salt to add to the unhealthiness, but seriously, I don't think it's that much worse than buttery popcorn. Going to give this to my kids with braces to see if it passes as a good popcorn substitute. I hope so as my daughter is craving popcorn like crazy!!! Thanks for sharing this recipe. It's a keeper. P.S. My daughter who craves popcorn finds this an amazingly good substitute. It may just save her braces :).
I have made this recipe for years, the recipe actually was on a box of cheerios close to 30yrs ago.. I have made it since I was kid.. I love Fried Cheerios.. I never guessed anyone else would eat/make them but myself, great to know others enjoy this tasty "not the healthiest of snacks" treat like myself.. Thank you Pumpkin for sharing this recipe!!!
We called cheerios and melted butter...I grew up eating these...I LOVE them . My kids also love them.
It's a great.snack. We just melted the butter and poured it over the cheerios then added salt eat them warm. with a large glass of pop...So yummy......
These are a wonderful little snack and even good on top of a salad for that extra little crunch. I did use worcestershire sauce and Lawrys seasoning salt in with butter and added alittle garlic powder and than Cheerios. Stirred constantly on medium low heat as I didnt want the butter to burn before cheerios. Browned until most all the butter liquid was gone and cheerio's were nice and brown and crispy tasting. Drained on a paper towel than added to bowl to cool. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Great way to use up extra Cheerios :)
A w e s o m e!!
I can't believe how easy and yummy this recipe is! I took Rhi's Mama's advice and added some Frank's to the butter and fried them up, adding sea salt afterwards. I can't wait til DH says let's make popcorn so I can make these for him. I only made a cup of cereal with about 2 T of unsalted butter and a teaspoon of Franks with two pinches of sea salt. Next time I will make the whole recipe with more Franks! Thanks!!!!!!!!! SA;)
