Fun with Food Friday- Cheerio Treats!!

I've received some really great recipes from ya'll this week and last but unfortunately I didn't have all the ingredients for one single recipe. Quite annoying (I'm going shopping today) so I found a fun and easy recipe in one of my cook books to try! This recipe is SO easy and great for getting the kiddos involved in the kitchen! AND its super yummy!!

What you Need
3 tablespoons butter
1 package (10 1/2 ounces) miniature marshmallows
1/2 cup peanut butter
5 cups Cheerios
1 cup plain M&Ms

Place the butter and marshmallows in a large microwave safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, or about 2 minutes or until puffed. Stir in the peanut butter until blended. Add the cereal and M&Ms; mix well. Spoon into a greased 13x9in pan and press down gently. Cool slightly before cutting.

This treat is so easy and yummy! I think we are going to be making it a lot this summer!! Especially when the boredom sets in!!

Be sure to check out Mama Chocolate to see what she's cooked up this week! And remember for sending in a recipe you can get FIVE (5) extra entries to any one current giveaway on my blog! Send recipes to mommyferg02 at gmail dot com.
