You need to save this recipe NOW! These easy Cheerio bars are the perfect snack recipe and a treat for the entire family to enjoy.
It’s back to school time!! My kid have been back in school only a few days and I feel like they are eating so much more. They have come home and cleaned out my cabinets! I’m not sure what’s going on. I guess that since they are sitting in class and not moving around, they realize they are hungry.
My kids always lose weight in the summer because they are more active, they can’t stop to eat! I decided to make these EASY Cheerio bars with marshmallows for their after school snack and I can put what’s left, if any, in their lunch boxes. You can make in less than 30 minutes.
This recipe is so yummy. Who doesn’t love marshmallows, chocolate, and Cheerios? We usually have Cheerios in our pantry for breakfast, so I had all the ingredients already. I love that it’s quick, easy and doesn’t make a huge mess to prepare.
My kids are 9, 11, and 14 and they love to help make this. It’s super simple and doesn’t require a lot of baking experience. You can tell by the video above. If you didn’t watch the video, scroll back up and watch it.
My older son loves watching videos like these. He must come to me about three times a week with things he wants me to make!
