Title: Peanut-Butter Cereal Treats (for Landscaping)
Post by: GingerbreadExchange on July 29, 2016, 08:06:06 am
My kids loved these as a treat, and it occurred to me that they would also be useful for landscaping in a gingerbread display!

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup peanut-butter
3 cups Cheerios cereal

Heat sugar and corn syrup in saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, just until bubbles form on surface. Stir in peanut-butter. Stir in cereal. Cool about 5 minutes or until mixture is cool enough to handle.

Lightly butter hands to prevent sticking and then shape into the desired shape and place on wax paper to cool.

(or, spread mixture into buttered 10 x 13 pan, pressing into pan with your hands; cut into squares when cool and eat!)(From cheerios.com)
