Cookie Recipe #164 - Chocolate Cheerio Treats
This is similar to the Rice Krispie treat recipe we have all made, only replacing the Rice Krispies with Chocolate Cheerios and adding chocolate chips to the marshmallow melting stage. Lots of chocolate for you chocolate lovers!
Ingredients: 4 tablespoons butter or margarine, 4 cups mini-marshmallows, 1 cup chocolate chips, 6 cups Chocolate Cheerios, 1/2 cup vanilla chips (optional).
Instructions: In large mixing bowl, combine butter, marshmallows and chocolate chips. Heat in microwave for 2 minutes; stir; return to microwave for 1-2 more minutes or until completely melted when stirred. Immediately add Cheerios and mix well. Press evenly into greased 9x13 pan with spatula. (Spray spatula with cooking spray for easier spreading).
If desired, place vanilla chips is resealable storage bag and microwave until melted. Press on bag to make sure completely melted. Snip off one corner of bag and pipe melted chips over top of treats. Allow to harden before cutting into bars or squares.
