Bonnie's Cheerio Snack

Here's a sweet snack recipe from Keeping Up Cookbook.  

These are great to pack up in ziploc bags and take with you on the go.  I have made these a couple of times already and can't even wait for them to cool before snacking.  They are so yummy! 


1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1 tsp baking soda
7 cups Multi Grain Cheerios

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  Spray a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.

In a large sauce pan over medium heat, melt the butter.  Add brown sugar and corn syrup and bring to a boil.  Simmer for 2-3 minutes, no longer.  Take off the heat, add baking soda, and stir until foamy.  Add Cheerios and stir well to coat evenly.  Transfer to prepared baking sheet and spread out in a single layer.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Let cool completely in pan, then break into pieces.  Enjoy!


  1. Rhondi, do these stay kinda soft or do they get really crunchy. I think they sound like a great treat for the school!

  2. Brandie, they are kinda soft and chewy with just a little crunch. They are best the first day.

  3. I love all the recipes you have done from the Keeping Up Cookbook, Rhondi - it sounds like a book I need to get! This one has to be one of my favourites though - I love the idea of using Cheerios in a delicious snack like this. I would be so pleased if you shared this post with The Gallery of Favorites this weekend - or if you prefer one of the other recipes you have from the Keeping Up Cookbook please feel welcome to share it instead. They all sound so good!

  4. These remind me of cereal bars my mom made growing up. I bet my boys would love these! thanks!


I love that you stopped by and are taking the time to leave a comment! I really enjoy reading them all. Thanks so much!
