Who doesn’t love the yummy combination of peanut butter and chocolate in these No Bake Peanut Butter Cheerios Treats? Throw in a handful of Honey Nut Cheerios and melted marshmallows and you have a match made in heaven!
We always have Cheerios and Granola Bars, on hand. (My son particularly loves the protein granola bars!) Can you guess what these products in the above picture have in common?
They are all General Mills products that participate in the Box Tops For Education program! Maybe you’ve heard of the Box Tops program, but aren’t exactly sure what it is? Every Box top collected is worth $0.10 for your child’s school. Over 80,000 k-8 schools participate and the schools can use Box Tops cash to buy whatever they need. Box Tops for Education has contributed over $525 million to participating schools since the launch of the program in 1996. How fabulous is that?
Just look for the Box Top label on the General Mills products you already buy. (Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Yoplait, Nature Valley, Pillsbury, Totino’s, etc… The list goes on.)
Now that we all have Honey Nut Cheerios to eat, how about a yummy snack recipe that is incredibly quick and easy to whip up and everyone will love. (Plus it’s perfect for the lunch box!)
How great do these look? And no more difficult to make than any other marshmallow cereal treat.
