Author Notes: Cheerio's are so toasty-tasty on their own but when you combine them with peanut butter, marshmallows and chocolate? A toasty-tasty-guilty-pleasure. Laurie

Makes: 9 large bars

  • 1 tablespoon salted or unsalted butter (add a pinch of salt if you use unsalted)
  • 10 ounces marshmallows
  • 1 cup smooth peanut butter
  • 6 cups Cheerio's
  • 1 cup plain M&M's
  1. Butter inside of 8 x 8 pan and set aside. Melt tablespoon butter in a large saucepan then add marshmallows and stir until melted. Add peanut butter and stir until blended. Add Cheerios and stir as gently and thoroughly as you can. I ended up dumping them into a bowl and using my clean hands. Add M&M's and carefully incorporate (many will break, but the color and flavor will be there and you can save a few to put on the top for presentation). Press into prepared pan (using a piece of wax paper will make this sticky job easier) and cool completely before cutting.
