I missed out on trying the limited release of Peanut Butter Cheerios in Spring 2013, but I’ve got some good news to share today. Peanut Butter Cheerios is now here to stay and will be hitting store shelves across Canada this month! I grew up eating Cheerios for breakfast and was curious to see how their Peanut Butter version would taste.
I think we have a winner here. I didn’t think it was possible, but I actually prefer the flavour of Peanut Butter Cheerios. We finished off our box in record time and I was out looking for it this past week at grocery stores in my area. They are seriously good.
I’m a peanut butter fan and love the sweet and nutty flavour of every bite. It’s a delicious way to start your mornings! Both my girls are fans too.
I reserved four cups of the cereal for a dessert recipe I wanted to try: White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios Treats. Think crunchy Peanut Butter Cereal mixed with a melted marshmallows and rich White Chocolate Peanut Butter (or use regular peanut butter if you don’t have that variety) and then topped with sweet white chocolate chip. It’s perfection in a pan.
I had to force myself not to overeat these addicting treats. They were gooey, stick and full of peanut butter and a hint of white chocolate.
White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheerios Treats
- 3 tbsp butter
- 40 regular size marshmallows
- 4 cups Peanut Butter Cheerios
- ½ cup peanut butter
- ¼ cup white chocolate chips
- Grease a square baking pan and set aside.
- In a large pot, melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir constantly until completely melted. Remove from heat.
- Stir in peanut butter and Cheerios until completely combined.
- Press mixture into the baking pan using a piece of wax paper. Cool in the fridge for a few hours. Cut into squares.
Talk about easy too! I love no-bake desserts like this one.
