Cheerio Squares

"My mom used to make this instead of rice crispy treats. Honestly I like these way more than the rice crispy version. For a twist, use Honey Nut Cheerios. I have set it up so that the Prep time is the the time on the stovetop and cook time is the time to let it set up in the pan. Enjoy!"

    These were in my little ones words "Oh so Awesome!" Perfect for my sweet tooth, and on the healthier side at that! We used Honey Nut Cheerios, but next time I am using multigrain cheerios! Thanks for posting!!

    Probably my fault, but I used large marshmallows not the miniature and 5 cups of Cheerios. They are so sticky and not very good. The large Marshmallows were all I had, not sure I would make this again. Didn't like as well as the regular Rice Krispie Treats

    With the seasonal pumpkin spice cheerios out now (Fall 2017), I'm thinking they might be a "winner" in this recipe! Will let you know if I try them.

    I would love to make cheerio squares for my autistic grandson who is not keen on sweets and also some days eats only rice cakes for breakfast and I don't see a great nutrition count on the back. We cannot put anything on them to make them more nutritious and if we make cheerio squares using sweet marshmallows he will probably reject them. He will on occasion snack on cheerios , so I am hopeful he would eat cheerio rounds if not sweetened with Marshmallows. Any ideas on what I could use to stick the cheerios together? Any ideas would be appreciated
