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 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 :).

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 :)

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;)
