  2. Take off heat and add pb and stir good. Add cheerios and stir good.
  3. Put in buttered 9x13 pan and press down real hard and even so they won't fall apart when you cut them. You can put in fridge to harden quickly or just let sit on the counter to cool.

This was very good and very simple. I ended up substituting the brown sugar with honey and the Karo syrup with molasses, but it still came out amazing! Definitely something I plan to experiment more with in the future. Thanks for the recipe!

I followed the recipe completely except after they had cooled I melted a bag of chocolate chips and a bag of butterscotch chips and frosted them with the molten deliciousness....these were a big hit with my work people....thank you sooo much Grandma Good!!!

Yummy! I ran short on corn syrup so used about half honey in its place.
