Try easy-to-make candy with good-for-you "O's."
cup milk chocolate chips
cup creamy or crunchy peanut butter
cup powdered sugar
cup light corn syrup
cups Cheerios™ cereal
Line cookie sheet with waxed paper. In 1-quart saucepan, heat chocolate chips and water over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth. Set aside to cool.
In medium bowl, stir together peanut butter, powdered sugar and corn syrup until well blended. Stir in cereal until evenly coated.
Lightly spray hands with cooking spray. For each candy, roll 1 tablespoon of mixture into 1 1/2-inch ball; place balls on cookie sheet and press slightly so bottoms of balls are flat.
Spoon about 1 teaspoon cooled chocolate onto each ball. Refrigerate about 30 minutes or until firm. Store in covered container in refrigerator.
To keep the candy mixture from sticking to the spoon when you spoon it out to make a ball, spray the spoon with cooking spray.
