DIRECTIONS

  • Measure cereal into large bowl. Set aside.
  • Boil corn syrup in microwave. Add white sugar and stir well. Return to microwave and reheat until boiling.
  • Add peanut butter to sugar/syrup mixture and stir well.
  • Quickly pour peanut butter/syrup/sugar mixture into mixing bowl with cereal. Stir well (but fast!) and then transfer to a pan or baking sheet. *NOTE: This step, and the one following, must be done as quickly as possible because as the corn syrup cools the cereal mixture becomes harder to spread.*.
  • Form mixture into one big rectangle about 3/4 inch thick. Cool in fridge for 1 hour.
  • After its cooled the cereal rectangle may be cut into bars or squares. An alternative is to break the rectangle up by hand into pieces.
  • Please note that cheerios should not make up more than 1/3rd of the mix as they absorb the corn syrup. If you need to use more cheerios (or other absorbent cereal) then add a bit more corn syrup.
