Monster Treats

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Linzi Jordan

I came up with this one day when I was making a snack for the kids in my mom's daycare. I used whatever cereal I had on hand (the first time I made it I had Fruity Pebbles, Cheerios, and Rice Crispy) and even threw in some pretzels! The children loved them and I thought they tasted great as well!

These are very tasty, but SO sticky and messy! Lol I guess kids like it that way, but these are definately an "eat it outside" treat. I added 8 cups of cereals instead of 6. I had no peanuts, but I will add them next time, and maybe some sultanas. A hit with the kids. [Made for Pick-A-Chef Fall 2008]
