    Pumpkie's Note:

    EDITED TO ADD: This is just a family recipe and treat. It is not exact, it will not be to everyone's liking. I have never had them turn out soggy or so bad they had to be thrown out. All I can say is cut down the butter or add more cheerios and maybe not everyone will llike them. I've seen many recipes posted her that were not exact and just family recipes. I'm sorry it has not worked out for a couple of posters, but it is not an exact recipe with proper instructions, its something mom made us as a snack to stretch money that was not there. Thanks for trying it but if your set against something absoulutely turning out perfect and to your liking with exact measurements and a science to it, you may want to pass this recipe by. Not a health conscience snack, my mom made these for us because her family could not afford popcorn when they were growing up and this was their alternative not a healthy snack but not only do I love it but also my kids love to have something nana use to have

      melt butter in a frying pan.
    2. 2
      add cheerios and brown stirring to coat cheerios. Cheerios should be browned but dry not soggy. You should let them fry up and get crispy.
    3. 3
      then salt as you would when making popcorn.

      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!
