We’re having guests for dinner on Sunday evening and so I decided I should start making some treats today for dessert. I figured we’d just have some cookies or bars and ice cream to round out dinner.
I’ve been craving something sweet the past few days, so I went into the pantry to see what I could make for Sunday evening and maybe indulge my sweet tooth at the same time. I walked out with a jar of peanut butter half a bottle of honey, sprinkles, some powdered sugar and the container of Cheerios.
Basic no bake bar ingredients that would keep in the fridge for a few days in an airtight container (assuming we don’t eat it all).
3/4 cup honey
3/4 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 cups of Cheerios
1/8 cup of sprinkles
Line an 11 x 7 inch baking pan with foil so that it overlaps the edges. You could also use an 8 x 8 or 9 x 9 pan your bites will just be thicker.
Mix first three ingredients together until combined well. Fold in Cheerios. Spread the mixture into the pan and press down. Sprinkle the sprinkles on top and press into the cereal mixture.
Refrigerate or freeze for at least 1 hour. Cut into 1″ squares (these are very sweet). If not eating right away, store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
* Just a note that besides being very sweet, the honey/peanut butter combination of these makes them sticky when they get a bit warm. So it’s best to serve them straight from the fridge or freezer and then place them back so they don’t sit out for any length of time.
