The girls and I made these Valentine's Day Cheerio treats yesterday, and they are DELICIOUS!
We melted the butter (about 3 tablespoons) and mini marshmallows (about 3/4 of a bag) using the microwave. Then we poured in the Cheerios a little at at time and stirred. I didn't measure how much Cheerios we used...we just kept adding more until it looked right.
We then added in Valentine's Day m and m's. Yum!
I pressed the mixture in a glass dish and let them sit over night.
This morning I cut them using metal cookie cutters. This was NOT easy to do, and it definitely would only work with metal cookie cutters.
There is only one Cheerio treat left...I'm so tempted to eat it, but I guess I'll be nice and divide it with Elliott and the kids in the morning.
