Summer fun with the kids in the kitchen doesn’t have to heat up the house. We’re exited to partner with Acorn Influence and Cheerios™ to bring this easy, fun, no-bake recipe. Let’s enjoy a #SummerOfCheerios!
Summer means more time for the kids to be creative right? All of my kids love getting busy in the kitchen, but with three older sisters my boys don’t always get their share. Bobby had been asking me if he could “cook” too. These easy, three ingredient, Cheerios™ bars are a perfect treat for your little one to make in the kitchen.
What you need:
- 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 3/4 cups peanut butter
- 3 cups Cheerios™
We had fun shopping for our No-bake fun in the kitchen at Walmart! There are so many Cheerios™ options! I just love that Walmart has everything I need in one place!
When cooking with my little ones, I like to assemble all the ingredients, bowls, and measuring cups and have them ready so to the recipe goes quickly and smoothly without my child having to wait around in between steps. Bobby had fun measuring the chocolate chips.
Next we dipped out the peanut butter. He did need a little help packing the cup, mostly I think because he absolutely hates getting anything on his hands. I’ve never seen anything like it!
Place the chocolate chips and peanut butter in a large microwave safe bowl.
Pouring and measuring the Cheerios was Bobby’s favorite part. I placed the measuring cup in a larger bowl so that he didn’t have to worry about over pouring.
Microwave the chocolate and peanut butter on high by 30 second intervals stirring after each time until the chocolate is melted and creamy. Microwaves vary and I started with frozen chocolate chips, but it took us two minutes to melt the chocolate.
Pour the Cheerios™ into the chocolate mixture and mix until the Cheerios™ are completely coated.
Spread the chocolate yumminess into a pre-buttered 9 inch square pan. Refrigerate until chilled and cut into bars.
Serve and enjoy! These are a huge hit at our house and Bobby was so proud that he made them! Don’t forget your Walmart Coupon before you head to the store! I hope you love these as much as we do.
